Rated 5 out of 5 by It started out "iffy" because we were accidently forgotten. The table behind us was seated 5 minutes after us and were served two rounds of drinks before anybody came up to us. I made a upset outburst and the waiter came over and asked if we've been served. We tld him no and everything was great from there on out. Probably just a minor oversight. Jan 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Request an experience with Sushi Chef by the name of Tom. It's like being in an elegant restaurant in China where they serve fresh sushi. Jan 15, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very difficult to find the place. The waiter even said their restaurant is "hidden and forbidden". Not disabled-friendly place. Jan 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Food was good, but service was poor. We complained to the Manager, she just said I'm sorry, but she didn't do anything for us, like offering a free desert. Jan 10, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rude owner accused us of lying instead of just fixing the problem...very thin slices of sushi that were very expensive...scrimped us on the pieces we paid for and food runner couldn't speak English when we tried to tell him it wasn't right and he left and when waiter finally came back we showed him after not touching food and he said something to owner and instead of fixing it right away she came over and was so rude and we spent a lot of money there and we just had to pay and leave and they didn't even bring us all the food we was an aweful experience and it was freezing and they stuck us outside with two small children and we ended up having bad sniffles the rest of the night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very romantic and fun. My family and I enjoyed ourselves. Dec 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality chinese, not oily. There was actually meat in the sweet and sour pork (many places there is mostly breading). Dec 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by The dishes were not brought at the same time, in fact one order had to be cancelled due to the sushi chef being overwhelmed by orders.One party finished the quite salty halibut with peas dish before the other party received her substitute order of an appetizer. The waiter was nice but forgot our wine order and had to be reminded. Nice atmosphere, music, etc., but not so good dining experience. Dec 19, 2014
