Great place to come if you’re looking for modern and creative Japanese-American rolls. The atmosphere is really laid back with most people wearing shorts and t-shirts even for dinner. It’s a loud, fun, casual environment with a large bar and several flat-screens.

The rolls and specials we had were all delicious. Some of the notable standouts were the Yellowtail Supreme (yellowtail wrapped around a mango salsa), Yellowtail w/ jalapeño, Lobster Roll, Mr & Mrs Lee (spicy tuna and cucumber w/ tuna and avocado on top), and Caterpillar Roll.

They even have a kids menu with chicken and beef teriyaki.

After you order drinks they bring out complimentary sake for the table.

I’m confused about their reservation policy. Earlier in the day I called to make reservations but the lady I spoke with said reservations aren’t needed that it’s first come, first served. But when we got there they asked if we had reservations.  wtf? Regardless of the policy, it only took a few minutes before a table opened up. Service was very quick, with at least 2 or 3 waiters serving and checking in on us.

This isn’t the place to go for sushi purists, but for anyone who likes Americanized ‘sushi’ it’s a must.
