Had sushi delivered from here several times over the past few months and have not been disappointed. The sushi is very fresh and rice is perfectly proportioned. I recommend this restaurant for its speciality and basic sushi rolls. Priced well too!

The bento box is nicely portioned and never a disappointment. The dressing with the salad is insanely good too!

Dinner here was such a fun treat as my group of ten enjoyed ordering so many different entrees and apps. Everything was delicious and the service very friendly. Some favorites were the garlic shrimp, orange chicken, and pineapple fried rice. Will definitely go again!
