Chef Yasushi Watanabe has sated sushi-seeking Chattanoogans since 1991 with a menu of authentic Japanese cuisine. Fresh fish is flown in daily from both coasts, serving as tasty dish adornments, offering fins of peace amongst rebel schools, and comparing regional submarine patois. Midday munchies are quenched with selections from the lunch menu, which include a lunch-box special consisting of fried dumplings, chicken teriyaki, rice, and a california or hot-crunchy roll ($8.95).
The dinner menu beckons lingual nerve endings with the sushi deluxe, comprised of tuna, whitefish, salmon, yellowtail, shrimp, salmon eggs, eel, and a california roll ($7.95).

All dinner options are supplied with rations of soup, salad, and daily prepared rice, so as not to leave victual grenades unloaded.
- The sushi that I was served was perfect. The pieces sized properly, the fish very fresh, the composition flawless and the plating appetizing. – springhop, Citysearch
