best deal... $33 for all you can eat sushi and all you can drink sake and beer! sushi is very good
Japanese restaurant + frat house party = YUCK – Decent food, not great, but okay. Service was decent up til the end when they handed us the check without us even asking for it. We weren't even done yet; we still had our drinks. The waitress was trying to rush us out so that they could give our table to some guys who were waiting. The decor is mediocre. But even all that is not as bad as the atmosphere was. It was a frat house in there. Loud, obnoxious, and rowdy. The place was so ridiculously loud, I had to shout to have any sort of conversation. It was definitely a frat/sorority clientele. Drinks were being dropped onto the floor, and people were shouting like they were taking chugs from the keg. At a frat party that's fine, but at a Japanese restaurant - not cool.
Not returning – I came in once with the sushi special, and I had thought it was decent. Came back second time, and it was abysmal. They set a two hour limit for the special - we waited over 65 minutes and nothing came. We left afterward.
I understand it's the special and you don't want too many orders in, but 30 dollars is a "little" much to spend for no food and no service.
This place rocks! – Great all you can eat sushi....$35 gets you all you can eat sushi that includes beer and saki throughout your dinner! The rolls were very good for the price and everything was very tasty! The place is packed (on Fridays, at least) and I recommend making reservations. It can get very loud inside, but its a really fun atmosphere that would be great to bring a big group of people to. Great service and I will be back!
Fantastic all you can eat and drink deal – The sushi special ($29.95 not including tax & tip) is an amazing deal. My friend and I had our choice of sushi and rolls and wine (the white was pretty good). I agree with the other reviewer, they don't pack the rice on at all. I can't wait to go back.
all u can eat and great quality – they offer a great all you can eat special for 23.95. this is a great all you can eat special because you can choose from some unique and creative rolls. the sushi is super fresh and they don't pack on the rice either like some all you can eat sushi establisments.
