    We drove from the Lehigh Valley for dinner and it did not disappoint!

    Older diners need to bring flashlights as the place rather dark, making it hard to read the menu. Otherwise food was delicious

    I love the outdoor dining area. It's serene for it to be in the middle of the city.

    It's promising for a drink and nibble, but stick with the sushi, because the fusion cooking rarely tastes as good as it looks. Read more

    Get the elaborate rolls and sit outside if the temperature permits!

    The Raw Sushi Deluxe platter was well priced for what you got. It was really good.

    Nice place and environment, but my first experience there was terrible. The food took forever, and the waiter forgot to order my drink. I got my drink 50 minutes into the visit.

    Stick to the sushi - the rest of the menu is bland and uninspiring.

    Save room for the Donburi. Trust me.

    Erica Nardello · September 8, 2013
  • Andrea P.

    Good chicken katsu donburi where the rice gets a little char. Eel avocado hand roll is a great off the menu item. Trust me, you won't regret it!

    Try the Suzuki Carpaccio appetizer - your taste buds will love you

    Tammy Sparacino · January 20, 2013
  • Kards

    Sushi is some of the best, but avoid the appetizers they are small and not worth the money

    This was the best sushi we've had in a long time. Prices were reasonable, drinks very good and the staff was great.

    Try the Sashimi - by far the best junkfood sushi roll in town!!! it's worth the calories!!!

    Huajia Yu · June 28, 2012
  • Huajia Y.

    Try the White Tiger (tuna & jalapeno) with Orange Blossom (salmon) - by far the best junkfood sushi roll in town!!! it's worth the calories!!!

    Their specialty rolls are especially tasty, and $15 lunch boxes let you taste a little bit of everything.

  • Jenn K.

    I highly suggest the White Tiger Roll if you dont mind spending $21 on 8 HUGE pieces of sushi(probably the best specialty roll I've ever had).Also,try for the romantic outdoor area if weather permits.

    The tempura is to die for. Pair some with an appetizer, and you have yourself a fabulous meal.

    Steph Parker · July 29, 2011

    Fantastic maki and tempura. Can't go wrong with a hefty appetizer of edamame. Great atmosphere inside and outside, even the bathrooms are pieces of art. Read more

    Like sake? There are more than 30 varieties of dry, smooth, floral and aromatic sakes available in both economy and top-shelf price ranges.
