    Great American twists on Japanese favorites. Diverse menu but you must try the noodles. Noodle bar for lunch is unique. Go in Tuesday night for special crab make sure to call and reserve

    Awesome. Casual, classy, and modern dining. Had sliders that was awesome! Juicy medium well with sautéed onion and pickled ginger was savory to my taste buds. Tuna taco was mouthwateringly awesome

    There is no doubt that you would be floating above cloud 9 drinking the Pink Lotus Martini! How could you not when cotton candy is involved? The carpaccio and lobster garlic noodles is utter spoilment

    They remember you, they care about you and they recommend the best food on the menu. I come here as often as I can. Sushi of the day is the best!

    I love their Salt & Pepper Calamari, Shaken Beef and Buddha Delight (a vegetable dish). Not forget to mention the famous Garlic Noodle! Oh, the Tofu Cheesecake is delish too! :-)
