    We stopped in while in the Drake area craving a mix of Chinese and Sushi and this hit the spot!!! First of all the place is beautiful, I would love to see it light up at night, with the blue lighted panels all over! It's also kept super clean! It's very sleek and modern!
    I ordered the Lobster tempura with mango roll and Shrimp tempura roll, both were fantastic! Very delicious. I will say the lobster mango roll was by far my favorite through! Really refreshing for summer!
    My hubby ordered the Sesame chicken and it was delicious! (I had to steal a bite). Super crispy with a rich sesame sauce!
    My sister ordered the Chicken udon and it's some of the best and most authentic Udon I have had and she was thrilled! Super flavorful and the noodles were very fluffy!
    The staff was friendly and our drinks were never empty (or even close).
    This will definitely be somewhere we come back to!!

    One of my favorite places to dine in and have a drink after a long day. This place has some of the best food in town. Packed with flavors and presented very nicely.

    For something light I recommend the salmon skin salad that was introduced to me by a friend of mine. It has such good flavor and the crispy salmon skin is a delight. On top of some greens.

    Not everyone likes sushi and that is okay. I recommend any of the chicken dishes. They're all great tasting and loving all the flavor combinations in the dish.

    Love this place! Their drink specials are also the best! Take a look and try it. You won't be disappointed.

    The service just gets better and better! We come here all the time, and they often remember exactly what we want upon ordering :)
    The ambiance is so calming, classy, and romantic.
    Also, there's lots of vegetarian and vegan options.
    The prices are quite reasonable, especially for a nice sushi place by Drake University.
    We will continue to dine here!

    We were greeted when we walked in the door and seated right away. Our waitress brought two glasses of water but never asked if we wanted something else to drink. I had to ask another waitress for a Pepsi. We ordered Crab Rangoon, which were heavenly! So light and fluffy and stuffed full of real crab filling. I don't like crab but I could eat those Rangoons all day! Matt ordered a couple different Sushi  rolls and I had non spicy Mongolian Beef. Last time my food was too spicy but without a little spice, the food was pretty bland. So...I will have to find a happy medium somehow.  Matt liked his Sushi . I would eat it if it wasn't wrapped in Keem.  I have been introduced to sweet chili oil and I could take a bath in that!! It's just the right amount of sweet and heat. When we go back, I think I will just stick with the Rangoons and call it good.
