“I pulled a non-Karen today and asked for the manager. I explained to her how amazed I was at their food and how utterly fantastic it is. I ordered an unagi poke bowl and a salmon Maki roll via GrubHub, then I went there in person and ordered the unagidon and salmon roll, and today I ordered the steak teppanyaki, salad, seaweed salad (OMG - seriously? BEST I'VE EVER HAD), and got the tonkotsu ramen with menma. She remembered me from my order today and when I was there last week. Let's talk about the salmon roll - absolutely fresh and filled with thick pieces of salmon and perfectly cooked sushi rice. The rice was a compliment rather than the main to the roll. The steak? Chef's kiss. perfectly seasoned and tender with amazing veggies. Serving size? Goodness, well deserved of the price. The seaweed salad? OMG. usually, I'll get a teensy bit for the same price. Here, you get a good chunk of it but it's served over romaine lettuce with chopped cucumbers. It's definitely a true salad. Now, let's talk about the tonkotsu. The chasu pork is seared perfectly and absolutely delectable. It's also served with green onions, an excellent half of a shoyu egg, and I added menma (bamboo shoots). The broth is excellent and you can tell it has been carefully taken care of (a tad garlicky, but that's fine with me), silky, and says "I'm your comfort food" over and over again. Lastly, the service shows how much they care about their food and their customers. Like I said, I pulled a Non-Karen and spoke to the manager and sang praises for their food and service. I now have my favorite Japanese spot now that I'm back in Birmingham. PS. their unagidon is on fire! Yum!“

“Update-Thank you Treasha for reaching and looking into this. 3/25/24.My coworkers and I order takeout which two of my coworkers were able to order online. For some reason my order wouldn’t go through online so we called it in. The food was good but my problem is the person who rung up the order decided to add themselves a tip which I wasn’t aware until it posted on my account. I was also charged a takeout fee which my coworkers weren’t charged. Never again will I order from this location.“

“This is a great Japanese restaurant on Hwy 280. The service is some of the best in town and everything we’ve tried on the menu has been delish!! Tonight we visited after not eating here for months and they remembered our order, our preferences, even our favorite table. We had the filet mignon and shrimp with mixed vegetables, noodles, and fried rice. The meal came with a salad with ginger dressing and a bowl of miso soup and we added an order or edamame. Perfect meal, attentive service, and reasonably priced!Kid-friendliness: Kids love this place and especially for birthdays! They have a big gong they ring and they sing and serve the birthday visitor a sparkler in a dessert.“

Our waiter was very rude after we mentioned our food tasting funny.. the waiters comment was “have y’all ever eaten here before” Very disappointed to only be told sorry and charged $25 for my food that only a bite was ate. Very disappointed to say the least.“

“the food was amazing! I personally never liked sushi but after today I cannot make that claim. The place was clean and our server , Brandon, was super nice and helpful. The food was amazing and that's from a person who does not eat sushi ever. But now I am a changed person, thanks to sushi village , I am a sushi person!“
