SUSHI SPREAD. Each dish meets the level of freshness expected of conveyor belt sushi, in addition to all having incredible flavor. The edamame was a perfect precursor to sushi, and each plate seemed to out-do the last.

The crunchy crab roll was light and tasty, and the shrimp tempura roll was mouth-wateringly delicious. The dragon roll, a medley of shrimp, eel, avocado and cucumber, formed the perfect combination.
