“Good brunch. I order the eggs Benedict and was pleasantly surprised. The rosemary potatoes are cooked with the rosemary instead of sprinkling the herb afterward for a fresher and stronger taste. However, the Benedict was delicious, the service was a bit slow but kind. I stayed for about two-three hours doing work and would definitely return.” – Julyeth A.


Where: 12344 Barker Cypress Road, Suite 210 Rating: 4 stars Number of reviews: 190 What people are saying: “Great service. Was greeted by a few people as we entered during lunchtime. Perhaps should've gotten something off the lunch menu but decided to get three rolls instead. The Shaggy Dog was good but the Firecracker one I really liked! Took a Philly roll to go. My only complaint would be that they are VERY SLOW! I will be back though.” – Hena J.

“Best Japanese cuisine in Houston!!!! Come try the Yellow Orchid, you will love it!!! But all dishes are awesome. Finally found a sushi place that is above and beyond delicious. By the way. BYOW” – Frank R.

“This has been my favorite sushi place in Cypress for the last 4+ years. The food is always top-notch and the veteran servers are fabulous. The owners are awesome too, hard-working, friendly and really care about their customers.” – Mandi M.
