"My daughter and I ate here before going to the Papermill Playhouse. It's very conveniently located. It's only a short walk from the playhouse. The food was good and they had some interesting choices on the menu. It appears as though they are in the process of doing some renovations. At least I hope that's the case. It has the potential to be a nice little gem."

"Great sushi. Great cooked kitchen entrees. Host & sushi bar servers are great, the "floor" servers need some additional work (have noticed that on recent visits.) But the food is A+."

"Very friendly place. Menu is diverse with Japanese and other Asian foods. Sushi roll selection is almost too big....
Food was good and fresh.
Kids menu is very solid.

"...and the sushi chefs are great -- artists, really.
The servers are inconsistent at best - a disappointment in a place with this high quality food. Not rude - but forgetful, inexperienced, was not able to communicate well.... We have been many times and our most recent visit (on a Sunday) was clearly the "B" team -and not impressive at that. It won't stop us from going because we love the sushi that much - but we will sit at the sushi bar & deal directly with the chefs.

"I'm new to sushi and seafood, but this place makes me crave it again so that I want to keep returning for more. The service is wonderful - unlike other sushi places nearby where you wait an hour for dinner after you've ordered, this place brings it out promptly. The texture of these rolls are perfect as well. They don't fall apart and they're perfectly bite sized so you get the flavor you're supposed to taste."
