Worst sushi joint ever visited.
I took a date here last night. The menu didn't offer much variety so we ordered the tackily labeled "love boat" which is $50 for 10 peices of sashimi, 10 peices of sushi, and 2 special rolls. The sushi is grocery quality at best. If you've ever had notable sushi in your life, this is reproachable in comparison.
The service was abysmal, there was not a wait - we were seated at the sushi bar right away as the place was half empty on a Friday night. Yet it was 10 minutes to get our drinks ordered, 25 minutes to get our food, then 25 minutes of waiting after we ate to get our check. The two waitresses stressed me out just watching them frantically run around the place tripping over customers and each other while awkwardly serving things.
If you enjoy a quiet, adult (as in, a place to take a date) atmosphere then keep driving. The place smells like pizza. The hibachi grill area is in an adjacent room, but not closed off from the sushi bar/dining area. This means you get to hear all the banging, flaring, and horn honking (litterally the hibachi chef honks an annoying horn over and over again that sounds like a horn on a clown's bike) from the next room over.
At the sushi bar there is a small flat panel TV mounted near the ceiling that was on a cable channel playing obnoxious infomercials and commercials; it's not ideal to overhear or see commercials demonstrating pest-control products for animals such as rats, mice, fleas, ants, etc. while you are trying to eat an overpriced dinner.
Mediocre at best. They use the same teriyaki sauce for the haibatchi vegetables, noodles, steak, shrimp, chicken and I am guessing whatever else you may order from the menu. The chef had zero personality ? not even a bad Japanese egg roll joke.
The sushi was decent ? we had the volcano and spicy salmon. If you have a little extra time, the drive to nakeed tchopsticks in broadripple is worth every second. I agree with the other comment that the place has a limited children?s menu.
I am not telling you not to go, but don?t expect anything over the top.
Best Sushi around..,not too. Yummy!! The sushi was great, some of the best I've ever had. The quality and freshness was so much more than I was expecting. You know how the sushi at a Japanese Steakhouse is usually not great. The food was really good as well. There's a really big selection on the main menu. Nice wine and sake list as well. I'll definately be going again
