This restaurant has very good hibachi style food, and their sushi is good as well, and fairly priced. I've been for lunch and dinner multiple times. I've only had two negative experiences. The first was when we went for Valentine's Day in 2009. My boyfriend had made a reservation for 8, and when we got there we found that they weren't even honoring their reservation, they were just adding people who had reservations on to the end of their waitlist. Obviously they had a huge wait since it was Valentine's day, and we knew everywhere else would be packed as well, so we ended up having to wait at least an hour and a half. Luckily we had Monopoly on my boyfriend's iPhone, so we managed to play a whole game and drink and entire bottle of wine while we waited. When we finally ate at 10ish, the food was delicious. We just found it rude that they would let people make reservations and then not keep them. The other issue was at lunch today. It wasn't a big deal or anything, but my boyfriend ordered the hibachi scallops. The hibachi chef overcooked them, and my boyfriend said they were rubbery. Everyone elses' meals were great though, and cooked perfectly. I recommended going for lunch, because the prices are cheaper and it's usually slower (weekdays anyways). You can get a steak and chicken combo (my favorite) for $10.99, just steak for $8.99, Filet Mignon for $10.99, as well as shrimp, salmon, scallops, etc for similar prices. At lunch they come with your choice of onion soup or salad, fried rice, and vegetables. I think at dinner you get all that plus a shrimp appetizer, I'm not positive though, and then the prices are more in the mid-teens. My boyfriend also had a spicy scallop roll which was $5.50, and he said it was delicious. All in all, if you like hibachi food and/or sushi, it's a great place!

Fast food Japanese, but it works. They cook / prepare to order, it's not ready-made. I've been three times and I'm a fan already, and will be going back to try more of the menu. It's mainly a teriyaki and tempura place. Kind of fast-foodish, but very fresh. The restaurant layout is fast-food style. Some bottled drinks, a self-serve soda fountain, plastic utensils and chop-sticks are available. No sushi "bar", and no tepanyaki grills. It's no Asaka or Saporro, and not even an Ichiban. But it does fill its own niche of a quick, inexpensive Asian/Japanese-style meal at a darn good price. The food is nothing at all like a fast-food Chinese joint. You walk up and place your order, pay in advance, and they bring it out to you when it's ready. The food is served on styrofoam and plastic. You dump your trash in the wastebasket on your way out. It's an abbreviated menu, but my lunch companions and I loved the quality. You also get good portion sizes for the money. My sushi sampler included the traditional wasabi paste and ginger slices, They have a good dipping sauce. The sushi menu is very small, but it's fresh and professionally made to order. The seafood in the small glass display case is kept under plastic film like it's supposed to be. The lady knows what she's doing in making it, too. Just opened May 2009. Very clean up front. Extremely clean men's room. A good change of pace, and something unique for the Castleton lunch crowd.
I have had sushi all over Indy and this is by far the best place. The food is SO good, and it is inexpensive too! It is run by a Japanese family who does it all themselves. From the outside the building looks like a little shack with a hand-painted sign, like it wouldn't be anything special. It is the best-kept secret in Indy! I have been going there for years. Every person I have ever taken there has gone back with their families and friends and become repeat customers. I recommend the Louis roll, the shrimp tempura roll, the Gyoza dumplings, the Yaki Ramen noodles, and the salads are my favorite menu items. Definitely check it out if you love sushi! Their teriyaki chicken is also amazing for people who don't like sushi or noodles. Five stars!!
