from the minute i walked in everyone was so friendly and timely. i sat down at the sushi bar immediately and had water and hot tea (usually i have to ask for that) given to me. the sushi chef apologized for the wait since they were short staffed that night but i didn't wait at all! you get FREE miso soup with every order (they even asked if i wanted a refill) and FREE veggie/salad samples. i am not too daring when it comes to sushi and i told the sushi chef (SONNY - he works tues & sundays) and he made sure to ask me how spicy i would like my roll and it was perfect! the hamachi was so fresh and delicious as well! i will be going back next sunday and will be making this a regular spot of mine! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but don't be fooled. We decided to try it because a friend recommended it. There's also a small sushi bar. The menu is quite extensive and the prices are quite reasonable for the quantity and quality of food. We had the 3-choice combo and sukiyaki. Everyone is served a small tasting of 3 different tsukemono (seaweed, cabbage, and 1 other).

For the combo, we chose shrimp tempura, butterfish, and sashimi. The tempura had 2 good size shrimp and 3 pieces of veggies and the butterfish had 2 nice size pieces. But the sashimi....I couldn't believe how much they gave. I think it was 3-4 very clean slices of red fish (no suji at all), 3 slices salmon, 3 slices of a white fish, 1 piece of tako leg and shredded daikon. The slices were larger than some restaurants we've been to that don't give as much. All this for $15.99. 2-choice combo is $13.99 so for $2 more, you can have a generous portion of sashimi. There are a lot of dishes to choose from for the combos.

The sukiyaki was very good also. It contained very thin beef, several slices of kamaboko, a shiitake mushroom, about 3-4 slices of tofu, won bok cabbage, round onion, and a raw egg yolk in the center. I think it was somewhere around $13.

Lunch is from 11-230 and dinner is from 5-10pm. We got there about 6:30 and luckily didn't have to wait, but it was almost filled. I would go a little earlier as parking can be a challenge in that small complex of eateries and bars, but it's well worth the effort.

Cant' wait to try the unagi...or tonkatsu...or 12 oz rib steak, or salmon....or

I fell in love with this restaurant the first time I dined here... and it's been my favorite since then. I'm a "neat-freak" so I love a clean restaurant... even the bathroom was nice! The food is fresh and the cut of meat they used for my tonkatsu was lean and tender.

Would recommend to ANYONE!
