    Voted Best Japanese Restaurant in 2010! The happy hour is legitimately happy, running “late” until 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday with discounts on beer, wine, and sushi, as well as daily sake.

    Hokey atmosphere and sub par service. It looks like they have good happy hour deals, but then they short you on the size of the rolls. Food is okay, but not great.

    Great happy hour! Nice atmosphere and food doesn't take long. Love the salmon wontons, mussels good, and can't go wrong w/ their spicy tuna. Bartenders always pleasant! Paid parking lot is convenient.
