Love this place! They always have sushi specials and I believe it’s the best sushi around. The other food is good too. Never too crowded. Very nice people. Good service. We come here at least once a week.
Patrick Murphy
To be honest, this is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is delicious, and the staff is friendly. During the Covid-19 pandemic, they were actually Really clean, and they included high-quality hand sanitizers as well as cleaning the pen you use to sign.
James Smith
No one in Hickory NC can compare to this location. Their food is amazing, their staff is friendly. Their sushi bar is the best! We come here often and would never consider another location.
