  • Good service. Delicious sushi. House sale didn't taste like original sake. Wasabi wasn't real. Tastes like substitute. Overall a great place to get lunch with family.
  • Very nice garden with Japanese Decorations. They are all about Zen, peace and love...
  • A small, well-kept garden. Wonderful place to be quiet in.
  • Beautiful calm park lot of elderly senior around.
  • If you're in San Mateo or Foster City there can't be a nicer place to take a walk. Lots of moss and pine trees; and I'd love to come back during the cherry blossom season. Easy parking in the nearby garage.
