The food is very good, yet it doesn't quite make up for the rude servers. They rarely come by to check on you and they gossip a lot about there customers, a friend of mine worked there and told me all about the nasty things said. So if you are in the mood for their food, I'd strongly suggest take-out, you could probably serve your family or yourself better than they could.

LOVEEE the food!!<br /> but the staff is horrible! Not attentive, & not good with customer service!

...the food itself is actually very tasty. Your typical japanese food with shrimp sauce. However, the service is extremely poor. No customer service skills at all. In addition to not being friendly and courteous...we truly were not served. We were never asked if we needed anything else, if we needed refills with our drinks, if we wanted desset...absolutely nothing.

Atami Express is a great alternative for dinner. The food is great, and it is prepared fast so we often find ourselves ordering on the way home from work!

Always good and very reasonable on their prices. My family loves to eat there and also often pick up takeout.

Nothin fancy about the restuarant but serves great Japanese food! Good amount of food served for their low prices - menu is short and simple. Seems they do more carry-out than dine in typically. Unfortunately are not in a highly travelled area but great place to have good Japanese for a fair price if you are in the are.
