I have been here about 5 times. For the most part the place is not so great. Food isn't bad with a couple of rolls that are really good but for the most part the service is pretty terrible. I went there on my lunch break once (I get one hour) and it literally took 20 min for her to take our order (we had to flag her down). After that they slowly brought out one roll at a time (with about 10 min in between finishing one and bringing out the next) even though we ordered everything all at once. We had to call the waitress over 3-4 times for service including when we were done and had to wait 15 min for her to bring our check. I ended up being half an hour past my 1 hour for lunch. Not to mention things like their cucumber roll (literally 5 tiny pieces of cucumber and some rice rolled in seaweed about an inch wide each) is about 7 or 8 dollars. Also their Website which I called and tried to order off of has apparently not been updated for years and half the things I tried to order they said they did not have anymore. If the service was at least decent I would probably go there a little more due to the fact there aren't many sushi places around here. Just be careful they don't over charge you also. They screwed up our check.

I went to this restaurant for lunch with my friends. The sushi doesn't look great. and the service is terrible. I won't recommend it to anyone. If you do go, make sure you read the check carefully. You maybe charged $24.95 for a cup of ice green tea. And most probably you will hear loud noice from the manager whose name is Terresa.
I went to this restaurant last week. It's was so bad. All good Japanese chefs was gone. They are hiring new Mexican chef and telling everyone that he is a number 1 chef. Sound "stupid". They made not really good sushi. Fishes are small and ugly. Services are bad and slow also. The manager/server name Terresa - is slow too and cheated on the menu prices. In the menu, hot tea is $1.00 and Mix Tempura is $5.95 but on the bill, they charged me $1.50/ cup for hot tea and $7.95 for Mix Tempura. I Would Not Recommend
