I personally do not like the location of the restaurant because it's off a highway in a plaza that can be quickly overlooked. Luckily, the design on the outside made it nearly impossible for you to miss it. Interior wise was really nice-black, red and white were the dominant colors. Sushi and sushi rolls were pretty expensive, but if you order the bento box it's not too bad (~$15) and has a ton of sushi and a long roll. I ordered 2 rolls: spider and philadelphia. My server was really nice and gave me a miso soup for free because my two other friends ordered bento boxes that came with miso soup. My rolls came and I pretty much became disappointed from there. Bento boxes include a california roll, but you can "substitute" by adding more money. Each of my friends' rolls from their bento box had 8 pieces. However, my two rolls only had 5 pieces each. I am not sure why it is less, and I felt kind of gypped. The spider roll was okay; each piece of the philadelphia roll was big and didn't look like a usual sushi piece at all. It reminded me of "kimbob" sushi that koreans make. Anyways I ended up paying $18 for 10 pieces of sushi roll. Other than that, the sushi itself was very fresh and tasted good.
