It is a three star place, but in a good way.
Given the location, I'd give the ambiance four stars. it has a nice counter with seats for the sushi. There is care given to the interior which is nicely accented.
There are some opening specials until the end of the month. The regular rolls are half off ($2.99). Some of the sushi is 99 cents a piece.
Complimentary tea with brown rice and a dish of house-made kimchee
- tempura vegetable rolls ($2.,99) ... three stars
- gyoza ... three stars ... a little oily, but tasty
It is no destination, but a better than average stop in the area. It is not another chain, Mexican restaurant, cheap Chinese joint or pizza place.
The table in back of me had their smart phones out checking yelp to tell them what or what not to eat. i found it on yelp ... kind of surprised me ... but I used my Chowhound instincts. I'm guessing tho if they do write it up it won't be positive as they had leftovers on their plates and asked for take home containers.
I liked it and will be back. but I suspect it is a joint where it might be best to pass on the sizzling beef ramen. I could be wrong. It is better than it needs to be in this location.
