Some items are a good value, such as the Special Bento, the Sashimi platter, and the house futomaki. Other items are over priced. The food from the kitchen is still good. They do meat very good and the fish specials and fish items on the menu have always been excellent. The Sashimi fish is always fresh but the variety is kind of limited sometimes. Service has changed over the last few years. It was always friendly and professional, even when the room was packed...but now the staff seems somewhat uncaring and at times surly. I agree with the other writer regarding the Manager behind the bar. The tables are too close together for my taste but many of the other patrons seem to enjoy the crowding (and the noise). I prefer a Tuesday night.
Pros: good food, ample parking, cute hostess
Cons: manager/bartender, tables are crowded, loud
