    I just wouldn't recommend it. It's fine, but go to shuck next door, it's better.

    Typical, overly sauced American sushi - but good nonetheless. I would be nice for them to pay a bit more attention to their rice to elevate the bite without having to rely on sauces.

    If you're a sushi purist, I'd suggest going somewhere else. Traditional sushi is better and a lot cheaper elsewhere. That being said, if you like crazy combinations then you're in the right place.

    Tip your servers they work very hard to deal with your needs and they have to clean up after your mess. Treat them well.

    Go on a Monday or Thursday night for half price sushi. The lunch special is also a great deal.

    I prefer & almost always go to the location on Gay Street near Market Square for the 1/2 price specials on Monday's & Thursday's quite often, but this location is a nice change & not as busy.

    Overpriced, slow and food is cold. Its a nice atmosphere but not worth the money for average food.

    If you go on half price night don't be hungry and in a hurry. New rule that you can only get one roll at a time.

    Try the JG Roll. The combination of the seared tuna with the crab and panko whitefish is the perfect balance between creamy and crispy.

    1/2 price sushi on Mon and Thurs. Get the Pizza Roll, and you will never see sushi the same way again.
