    It really is all about the happy hours and sushi, because they're great. Bring friends or a date. Modernly-designed with pleasant lighting. Has a nightlife scene that comes out after dark.

    The Vegas Roll and the Tsunami roll are the best in the city. Don't try the I-forgot-to-sign-my-check-to-avoid-paying-the-waiter-a-monster-tip trick, because they'll add it anyway.

    Great choices at happy hour! Not on the happy hour menu, but my favorite roll is the forbidden apple. Crab, shrimp, apple, avocado, and peanut sauce. Delicious!

    I would highly recommend sushi during happy hour! It's a great deal. It starts at 3pm but not sure when it ends

    I had the Philadelphia roll, spicy roll with scallop and shrimp tempura roll. All were delicious but the spicy roll and shrimp tempura were amazing!

    The Mr. Lobster Roll is pretty good but we come for the atmosphere, great specials and live music. Wednesday is ladies night.

    Go for Happy Hour and sit on patio. Basic rolls, edamame, egg rolls and other goodies for just $3. Yummy martinis for just $5! Any other time and the price doesn't match the goods.

    Ladies night is a great deal! Come early and have a drink at the bar. Not all the specials transfer to the table.

    Crispy chicken spring roll is excellent. Pad Thai combo with shrimp, beef and chicken is amazing, a touch spicy

    Happy hour is definitely the best time to go. Try the Nara Cane martini, it's awesome and during happy hour it's only $5

    Atmosphere is the best in Kansas City but the quality of the rolls are not my favorite. They lack the simplicity of real Japanese food.

    When you've waited for 15 minutes to be seated and then you look around and see open tables everywhere and not even busy... you know that it is time to go elsewhere where people want your business.
