I only give this place 2 stars due to the fact it taste okay. Extremely irritating I had to wait over 1 hour for 4 sushi rolls the manager in the back working by himself doing the sushi’s rolls(Very Slow). My combination plate was done before sushi and was sitting for 30 minutes or more. Sushi was finally done I get home and my plate is ice cold! Fried Tempura soggy! Never going back work format sucks and dude needs help!
