Some of the staff treats us like family but when it gets busy, things tend to fall apart resulting in long wait times and missed dishes. Great cocktail menu. Sushi has fresher days than others. Large interior and you can eat in the main dining room, private rooms, sushi bar, and bar (bar). Good record with order accuracy for take ... read more

Been coming here for many many years...birthdays, holidays, and simple days.  

My family even came for a private meal after a funeral (with private room accommodations).  

The food, rates and especially the service has been good, all good.  I travel the world, but I live locally--so they are my hood, or my "neighborhood

Right now you get double orders on all their sushi rolls and they are the biggest portions I've seen.

The fried rice and love portion roll are amazing, especially since sushi is but one get one free.  The spicy tuna roll and spicy salmon are fresh and simple too.   The other rolls are so-so especially naked tuna and anything with bt he really gross spicy Mayo they use.

Food was delicious, filling, cheap (for the amazing quality) and was served beautifully with plenty on the plate. Staff was friendly and the place was beautiful and welcoming. 100% would recommend. Absolutely amazing. Bonus points for the chocolates after!

Rating is based on the ramen. Cannot comment about the other food. Service was very good, but ramen was average. Noodles were a little starchy. Good portion of meat and other ingredients.

Went on an awesome lunch date here, good company, and good food.

A longtime favorite, this is a family-owned and operated restaurant. Even the kids may be involved in the service evenings. Always personal service and excellent food, thanks to Coronavirus and a limited number of diners, the service is yet another level up. A great time to check out godaiko ... read more

Decent portion sizes and beautiful restaurant ambiance, but it smelled really off where we were sitting, there were tons of flies everywhere, my avocado roll was almost completely brown (dark brown, not like when you leave it sitting too long), the ginger was completely dried out, the rice tasted off, and the prices were outrageous - ... read more

Amazing locally owned and operated sushi place. Customer service is top notch and the food is authentically Japanese. Large portions if you get the rice based dishes instead of sushi. Highly recommend for everything from business meetings to tennis team dinners.

I thought this place did a very good job at serving us and managing the store. It was clean and well maintained. The food was good enough, but sub par for the overall price that we had to pay for it. We were also left waiting for quite some time for a reasonably small order. In the local area there are other, better options for bang- ... read more

My mom and I came here for the second time and it was just as amazing as the first. The food was so delicious and the staff were really nice and helpful. They talked with us and were friendly despite us social distancing! It was a great experience, especially for dining in COVID times.

For anyone hoping to try a few new rolls during the Taste of Ann Arbor: the 2 for 1 roll offer means you get two of the exact same rolls. There’s no option to mix/match for rolls of an equal or lesser value. I wish this was more clearly stated online or over the phone while placing the order. The person taking my order did not confir ... read more

Excellent service and great staff. I came back to this place a second time. The nigiri sushi, chicken sliders, and tea are very good. I didn’t enjoy the spider roll or the yakisoba as much as I did the first time. But I will say the shrimp lobster version of yakisoba is tastier. I really wanted to love this place because of the staff ... read more

My only complaint about my visit ...
My only complaint about my visit was how confusing the restaurant week menu was. They used the word "or" so I thought I had to choose but the waitress said we didn't get a choice, we got ALL of the food listed on the menu. Say what?!  For $18 total for two people's lunch ($9 pp)....

We each started with a giant bowl of chicken

Fantastic dinner tonight at the sushi bar.   Attentive staff was appreciated after a long day in meetings.   I would recommend this to any business travelers staying in the area or along state street.    I had spicy salmon roll and California  roll.   Both were great.  Scallop and tuna for sushi and the pieces were as long as my I ph ... read more
