really good sushi – the sushi is amazing, fresh and delicious. the bento boxes offer generous amounts of food for $7-8, great stuff. lots of people, get there early.
Cheap Japanese Eats That Can't Be Beat Elsewhere – This is a local favorite for many reasons - they have great prices, the sushi is fresh and creative, and best of all, the grilled fish selection is delicious. The service is a little slow at times but the food is well worth the wait. I really can't complain - there's a reason this place is busy all the time.
Great Nigiri and Maki – Excellent food that my family has been patronizing for over a half dozen years. Non sushi lovers will enjoy the Iron Plate specials posted on a whiteboard in both the front and back rooms. A fish comes sizzling on an iron platter with some cooked soybean sprouts and a bowl of rish. The sea bass is very good.
The service is horrid, but worth it for the quality of the food and price. Ignore the menu and order from the long white sheet listing sushi and from the whiteboards. Try some of their more interesting maki, including the spicy tuna with cilantro. The caterpillar roll is a good basic. I recommend getting the soft shell crab appetizer instead of the Spider Maki, if you are considering ordering it.
Awesome Fish and Sushi!!! – Like the other reviews, the service can be suspect...but that is part of the appeal. The place used to be a few doors up and was even more cramped than this "expanded" version. Those who are die hard fans realize that the little annoyances like the service or the wait, are well worth the delicious food. Everything I have had there is great...I highly recommend the oysters, the mahi mahi or sea bass on the sizzling platter, and the sushi. The sushi is better than Ebisu's and will save you enough money to buy some sake. Enjoy.
Yummy! – This is one of my favorite sushi places. they have the best, largest variety of rolls at an unbeatable price. try the sushi nuggets if you want something different. the service is slow, but it's because the place is packed every single day. lines have formed outside before the place is even open for dinner. it's because the food is so good. i would recomend taking your food to go.
Iron Platter Fish – The best thing to order at this place is any variety of fish on the iron platter. Order off the white board for this instead of the regular menu. Your fish will come on a semi-sizzling iron platter and you can choose from sole, seabass, orange roughy, salmon, halibut, etc. Great sushi selection as well. Service is less than stellar but who cares when you can get great food for a good price like this?
Service no good – Service was very slow. I agree, hiring teens who dont know anything is a turnoff.
