No matter how crowded the parking lot is, there always seems to be one or two tables left for my family to visit, even on Friday nights -- yet I've never seen it anywhere close to empty. It's like a magic trick. The food is equally magical, with a huge selection of rolls and a charmingly apologetic note on the menu about pictures showing two "skewers" of each type even though each order is only one "skewer". This is my go-to sushi place, just noisy enough to be fun without being annoying, and with consistently good service and food. And for some reason, the miso soup always tastes better here than anywhere else...
2nd time here, one for regular dinner and one for my birthday.
We sat 10 at our table and it was crowded. Our cook was young and very athletic. He was great with names and the kids.
Fried Rice- B. It was better at Benihana's.
Filet Mignon- A+. Tender, tender tender.
Chicken- C- very dry.
Shrimp- C- small, stringy.
Veggies- B. they mash them all together unlike Benihana's. We like them separated.
Service- A- It was very good and the waiters were very courteous and on top of things.
Owner- He was great with the kids and gave the kids each a toy.
I have visited this place on different occasions and have been impressed every single time. From atmosphere to service to dish presentation that looks like it's straight out of a food magazine, this sushi spot is five-stars, start to finish. Not only are the portions huge, they are reasonably priced and the quality is simply the best, the freshest. Service is always top-notch, very prompt, friendly and accommodating which is one of the main reasons we keep going back. This place can get very busy Fri/Sat nights but well worth it. Make sure you try the Volcano roll and Rolls Royce rolls, these are way too delicious. Two thumbs up!!
