Its flavor profile is totally different from most sushi served stateside (you only occasionally even see battera, a square perfect mackerel-kelp package) and I think you either take to it or you don't. The rice is sweet and vinegary and plump and there is a lot of it compared to the thin sheets of fish.
Personally, I find the sugar and vinegar cloying after awhile. I think it works really well for the inari (they make great inari), and it certainly offsets the mackerel in the battera nicely. In fact, it offsets everything nicely - the shrimp, the fresh, flavorful mushrooms and mountain vegetables (a far cry from the requisite limp carrots and cucumbers in most rolls), the seaweed - but I lose the joy after about four pieces.
I can't give them any less than four stars because they serve down to the last pinch of sugar exactly what you get in Japan, and all their ingredients are clearly top notch. They're also very affordable. Also, an old Japanese man saw my friend and me eating our sushi boxes and got really excited that Americans were eating sushi and gave us some candy. But just keep in mind what you're in for. You know that feeling when you're not sure if you want dinner or dessert? THAT'S when you should come here.
