Great clean place, with very high quality sushi and dishes. I'm addicted to their Salmon Nigiri platter.

I get seaweed salad and a sushi "lunch box" to go from here at least twice a week. The fish is always very fresh, and sides like the seaweed, cucumber, and squid salads, miso soup, edamame, etc are great too. Generally the premade lunches are pretty basic mixed nigiri sushi (the slice of fish on a pad of rice that most people are used to) next to a California roll, Spicy Tuna roll, or other simple maki. If you are lucky enough to find one of the more complex rolls ready to go, or don't mind waiting 5-10 min while the kitchen makes one for you, you are in for a treat. Personally, I love the Firecracker roll and the HongKong Dragon roll, but again, everything very good and very fresh. They do a great job with sauces, spicy pastes, and the more complex preparations as well. I didn't rate their food a 5 because I would save a "highest" rating for really exceptional, unique sushi like you might find at Morimoto, etc. For a quick lunch/to-go sushi, this place is fabulous. (They also serve other Japanese food like Udon noodles, but I have only tried that once... it was good but I don't have any other experience to compare against so I don't think I should really review it.) Other aspects... service is great, the kitchen is fast and obliging, and everyone is very friendly. They remember repeat customers. Good value, too, considering the high quality of food. Atmosphere is pretty blah, but considering that I've gotten takeout every one of the 20 + times I've eaten here, I don't really care. Overall, a great place for a quality, affordable sushi lunch.
