They are very busy but the staff does a good job at paying attention to the customers and they are positive and energetic.Best of all the food is always good

The sushi is phenomenal!!! It really is!! It was delicious!!! But the service was horrible! They do not check on tables, the 2 best friends that work here are just always talking , they don’t do anything but talk and talk and talk. Very low customer service! And the servers act like they hate their jobs, no smiles! If they stepped up their customer service and got better servers that actually work this place would be the best!!!


Love the food here. Wait time may be long at times but it's a small restaurant so it's understandable. Best sushi in the AV imo

It's okay, good service, quick food, fast drinks. Overall just okay. The sushi is really good. No complaints. Their soju not so much. It was in a plastic container. I hated that & tasted like kool-aid I'm thinking maybe they forgot to put alcohol in it because I didn't feel the effects of soju like I usually do when I order at every sushi spot I go to. Interesting choice of 90s music for a sushi spot. ?

I really like this restaurant. Service was great and so was the food. It's a bit of a wait to be seated but the food is worth it. Great location for date night or family get together.

Red Salmon is always delicious. One of the few bright spots in the Antelope Valley. Highly recommend the miso ramen. Delicious.

There was an initial 30 minute wait for Our party to be seated, but once We got in Our Server Ashley C. Was amazing. The food was on point, hot, and delicious. I'm recommending the Rattlesnake Roll, an the peach yogurt soju, and the plum sake.

Had to wait awhile to get in since the dining area is so small but it was really good food. I got the dinner box and it was a lot of food. Definetely worth its price. All the sushi we ordered was devoured

18 July 2021 *Review is based on overall service and food* It's my sisters birthday and she loves sushi and our parents have been here multiple times and they talk veryhighly about this place. So we decided to give it a try. I understand that this place is short staffed, but the staff/owners are absolutely NOT trying their best to accommodate guests. No chairs outside for guests to sit, and we had been waiting for our party to be called for about an hour and when I went inside to ask about how long it would take for us to get seated. I had seen 3 booths emp Staff, is honestly not that great. They are no where to be found until your food is ready to be served. You have to take initiative and get everything you need/want within the 2 split seconds that you see them, if not then, you'd have to get up and get everything yourself at the mess of a damn table that they have showing in front & center, where all the guests can clearly see how unorganized, small/cramped place, and unprofessional this place is. Not to mention, the owners here, obviously don't care about customer service or their staff, if they did, they would ensure that there is enough space and a section for every single thing from packets of sweet and low to boxes of napkins or even to-go boxes. If they cared about their employees, the employees might actually be pretty okay with working there. You can see that the employees don't care about the customers and it all boils down to how the owners/managers treat them. Food came out okay, I don't really like sushi but from what I've seen, every item my family ordered came to us at different times and it took about 30 minutes for the last item to arrive.

It was ok. Nothing was labeled and all the sushi's were in two boxes, was left confused as to which one was which since I had never ordered from there. Many looked similar. Took 40 minutes for 4 rolls. I understand that Covid has made people not want to work but they should let people know it's a longer wait.

I was looking forward to eat at this sushi spot. We got there in peak hours and is completely understandable that it gets full quickly and write your name on the list. Is not ok when you witness people just bypassing the list and sit without checking in with the staff there. Very unorganized and poor customer service. The food was below average sushi I have tried in countless restaurants I been too. The salmon was soggy and the rolls were also soggy. I won't be back for sure.

They need a bigger restaurant.. I get there were capacity restrictions and they have limited staff.. but waiting an hour or better for a party of 5 because they seated a small party at the only large table they have is a bit much. Otherwise my family loves the food and the staff was nice.

Right now under covid conditions my new I can understand being a little short staffed during the lunch time it's limited to every other table so maybe about five parties of no more than four.Now in regards to the food I found it a little lacking the fish was clean tasting but the rose and a combinations and lacked some depth of flavorIn some of the pictures I posted there is a miso vegetable soup do not order it the waitress forgot to ask if we would like it with bacon or without but it's not really vegetables it was more like bacon and cabbage fortunately the waitress agreed to removing the item off my bill do not order it.On the other hand please do order the oysters which I also took a picture of fantastic very clean good size very fresh in regards to soups please try the Miso tempura soup which was fantastic great tasting broth the sushi which is why we were there the Ono and the albacore and the tuna were okay the owner and the albacore definitely locked some taste on the albacore the crunchy onions were soggy because the sauce was added after it was topped with the onions so you don't get the crunch and all the flavors go dripping by the side instead of penetrating deep in would I give it another try be honest probably not anytime soon maybe if somebody else was going and they want to go there I would go

The staff here is ALWAYS cheerful and so accommodating. And their food is yummy/well-served. That combination of service and food quality is what keeps me coming back! Right now the restaurant isn't at full capacity because of social distancing... so we did wait about an hour for a table of 7 people. Hopefully they'll re-open to full capacity soon!

Good food but they need better help. They don't answer the phone. And when they do, they put you on hold until you drive there. At which time they forgot they put someone on hold. Another thing, they have about a 20% chance of getting your order correct the first time. I'll be eating at Big Tuna from now on until they get some competent front people.
