    Great, fun atmosphere! It's small inside so there is usually a wait at peak hours, but it's worth it. I love that they have reverse happy hour starting at 9 and all day Saturday & Sunday!

    Not overly priced. Ordered the ninja special maki, rock and roll and tiger eye roll and wasn't disappointed. If you enjoy lychee- try the pink lychee drink during happy hour. Don't come starving.

    Avoid coming here after happy hour, 7 pm. They jack up the prices more than double. If you're stuck in this situation, go for the teriyaki.
