    Great sushi.Good service. Non-traditional faire is the feature but there is plenty to offer the purist. Good bar (cash only). Lively atmosphere.

    Someone needs to tell the white boys behind the counter: this is Japanese fast food. You're not a top chef. You're lazy and slow.

    You can't combine your Groupon with any drink or meal specials. Bummer.

    Not so good tonight California Rollin. Our 6 Vegan rolls were sad and loose without requested onion and tofu. Never saw server to get refill on beverages or a check back to ser how things were. :(

    Raised prices on rolls and Sunday special then lowered allowed price per roll you can order = diminished value.

    Idk what happened. I used to love this place but I was horrified today. The avocado roll was $4.99, it should be $3.50 if that. The food was poorly made and the service was horrible. I won't be back.

    I helped Tom survive in his early days. That was when Lotsa Fish for two was a meal. No uni, no toro, no nothing now. Just typical American style tempura sushi. Sad decline.

    Authentic sushi? No. Fun American take on sushi with onion crunchies & BBQ sauce? That sounds right. A good selection of veg*n rolls. They will put veg rolls on a separate board for you if you ask.

    If you go to their website before you get there, they always have a word of the day that will either get you a discount or a free treat!

    New spot is awesome!!! Sunday special has changed a little, however. It only includes rolls under $9 and does not include the special rolls of the day. Still awesome taste though!

    The sushi is really good... And the wait staff is really nice. But the service overall is lacking. I still come weekly. It's worth it!

    Perfection takes time and is worth the wait. If you want mass produced, go to Wegmans. This is sushi made with love!

    If your a first time sushi person I'd suggest a cooked Eel or Salmon roll like the Pacific or Magic rolls, quite delicious and no really fishy taste
