Came here for the first time ever. Don't let the negative comments steer you away. The menu was a bit overwhelming since I only wanted sushi. Young lady that sat me was friendly, the one on the register was a bit harsh, saying things like "menu is outdated" "he's a new chef so he doesn't know much" "these pictures are from way back." Clearly things you don't want to hear on your first visit. Regardless, the takeout orders kept coming in, I was one of two parties dining in and our food came out in a reasonable time. Ambiance was spot on, I could've stayed there a lot longer. Started off with some Shumai, which came fried...and it was tofu... (it was my fault for not asking more about it given the lack of description on the menu) The Seafood Terriyaki was mediocre. Calamari was tough and the baked clam was not baked at all and tasted questionable. But the Maki Maki Roll, the reason for my lunch out, did not disappoint. It was crunchy, the tuna was flavorful and I enjoyed every bite of it. Will be back to try out some other items.
The entrance to the restaurant hasn't been swept in weeks; old newspapers, candy wrappers, bits and pieces of trash scattered in front of the door, Halloween decorations on the patio still up and shabby. Inside, the owner is at the back table talking loudly on the telephone, a cook from the kitchen flirting with a male customer. The food? The Nigiri sushi was barely warm yet overcooked at the same time. $8.99 for tasteless. The sushi rolls themselves are too big. Sushi is supposed to be a bite...this required you to try and bite it in half or shove the entire thing in your mouth. Waaaaay to much rice. This used to be my favorite sushi place, but they need to get their act together.
I came back to try again as I have lived in another state for the last 3 years. It hasn't changed much. Which is good. I placed a to-go order and picked the 3 item dinner special. It was plenty of food. Good size rolls and 4 pieces along with soup and salad. The price was fair and I enjoyed it when I got home. Give it a try.
Food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the service was exceptional
