Glossy floors and shiny wood walls line the room, setting the stage for UKAI Sushi & Chinese's centerpiece—a burbling fountain, home to a towering plant and cascading waters flowing down a rock formation. Though the scene is captivating, the main attraction is the menu, covering both Japanese and Chinese cuisine. Drawing on Japanese traditions, the chefs craft specialty rolls, some with surprising ingredients. For instance, the Angel roll pairs sliced apples with shrimp and crab meat, and the Snow White roll wraps up coconut sauce and tuna without attracting evil queens. Conversely, they specialize in Chinese-American staples, as well as a lineup of chef's specials, including coconut shrimp drizzled in coconut sauce and honey-walnut shrimp.

With 15 years of culinary experience, Sushi Train's chef feels equally comfortable pan-frying traditional Japanese entrees and crafting attractively assembled rolls draped in sauces and decorative toppings. In addition to drawing from a menu that features an extensive selection of familiar maki, the chef also crafts a number of signature sushi creations that incorporate such ingredients as salmon tempura, mango sauce, and Cajun-spiced king crab. Semicircular, high-backed booths line the dining room's gently lit walls, which feature large photographs of sushi entrees. For a distinctly transpacific ambiance, the room also boasts silk screens and bamboo shoots stolen from a panda's pantry.

In 1977, Eddy Ho came to America with the dream of opening his own restaurant. In the 35 years since, he has lived that dream three times over, founding a trio of establishments that spotlight the showiest styles of Japanese cooking while commemorating the year of his transpacific crossing. Whether it's filet mignon, chicken, and seafood chopped by a flurry of clicking blades on hibachi grills or a sleek roll of sushi assembled by deft hands, each entrée arrives in a dining room decked with hints of traditional Japanese architecture, including subtle geometric patterns, crimson accents, and painstakingly manicured flora. Glasses of imported Japanese beer and sake stand ready to accompany each meal, helping diners toast to good fortune or play a glass harp rendition of their college fight song.

Wagyu-beef jalapeño poppers, baby octopus with wine sauce, oyster shooters, and fresh yellowtail carpaccio prepare stomachs for a culinary adventure at Musashi Sushi & Grill. In addition to these delectable Japanese-style starters and four menus full of maki, nigiri, and sashimi sushi, the kitchen turns out korean hits, such as bulgogi with ginger-marinated beef and sweet-potato noodles, and American-style favorites, such as steaks with mashed potatoes and blue crab cakes drizzled with white-truffle oil.

Over at the full bar, bartenders fill glasses with wine, beer, and mixed drinks. They also pour hot, flavored, and cold sake and can even turn the fermented-rice drink into a Saketini cocktail.

G-In Sushi & Grill’s team of sushi savants whips up a diverse assortment of Japanese and Chinese dishes and populates a menu with traditional and specialty sushi rolls. Appetizers goad feverish palates into quickly escorting savory pot stickers ($5.99) down esophageal hallways before fire-sauce-slathered G-in salmon ($7.99) ignites the sprinkler systems of hungry mouths, which can only be shut off by janitorial tongues. First-rate specialty rolls—including the shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, and eel-sauced G-In crunch ($13.99 each)—lead a coterie of more traditional cast mates such as california ($5.39) and spicy-tuna rolls ($5.39), which are all available in white or brown rice. For dinner options beyond cartouche creations, the full dinner menu beckons appetites with Nama Sake Don ($16.99)—a flavorful pairing of salmon and rice—or mongolian shrimp ($12.99).
