Business lunch

We went for a business lunch with a friend, the food was very good, I had ordered sushi, and my friend salad. I didn't give an excellent rate because of the atmosphere, I think this place should be more cozy. But besides that all the other was perfect! Thanks!

Very expensive. Gross lukewarm sushi. Also had tempura shrimp that was a weird texture. Not good at all. Waste of money.

Last week I ordered food with their delivery service, and honestly it was the WORST experience and service I had ever received from a restaurant.

Highly recommend, teriyaki shrimp was beautifully spicy and the sauce was just perfect. Fried ice cream was quite good, and I don't like it normally.
