    Not the place to go for refined Japanese cuisine, but delicious nonetheless. Very large portions. Can get very crowded. Add your name to the clipboard at the entrance. You may need to wait a bit.

    This is not high-end sushi. But the fish good enough, the portions are enormous and the price is right. I love it. You can have your food brought on a wooden boat if you want.

    If you are a fan of raw fish, definitely try the crazy monkey, orange blossom and sake rolls! Ps, you can never go wrong with the chirashi combo. They are all so delicious... !

    consistently slow, tasteless flaccid sloppily sliced fish, and even dry, hard rice. avoid unless you're a highschooler. or even if you are.
