Good, fresh sushi

No real surprises here, which can definitely be a positive at a sushi spot. The waitresses are very nice, not too speedy and can barely speak English, but not a bad experience. Don't go if you are in a hurry -- the pace here is definitely relaxed.

Come and give a try. Located in Brewster Mountain Lodge. You will place your order on a card and then chef will bring it to you on a single plate. Really tasty sushi. Highly recommended.

The prices are very reasonable and the food was tasty and the fish was very fresh. The thing that made this a three and not higher was that much of the nigiri and some of the rolls fell apart and didn't hold when picked up. By the time we left we all had our soy dishes full of rice. Staff... More

Small, charming spot. We were seated quickly. I hadn't seen a plastic sheet before to check off my selections and didn't really like it but other than that, the service experience was fine. The food arrived quickly and the fish tasted super fresh and flavourful. Only quibble was our sticky rice wasn't holding together well with the sushi. They checked... More

I've been to this restaurant a couple times and I've never been disappointed. A large menu to choose from and always of the highest caliber. The salmon melted in my mouth. And I love the little gummy that props up each diner's chopsticks. Please enjoy!

Maybe, just maybe my expectations were high due to other reviews on TripAdvisor. But sadly I have nothing positive to say about this place. From the moment we waited too long to be seated things just went down hill. Services was terrible due to the lake of communication & even awareness for customers. The restaurant was not busy, however there... More

I like the Ramen (noodles), especially in a cold winter evening, which warms my heart and soul. Speedy service with friendly staff. The Asparagus roll is also unique.

I am a Sushi and Japanese restaurant snob and am very critical -- all I can say is that this place is superb! The sashimi is extremely fresh. The uni (sea urchin) terrific. The salmon eggs perfect. The house saki great. The small dishes and rolls well done! I loved this place and went back twice. Prices are very reasonable.... More

Went here for dinner on a Saturday night (after 7). Not a lot of customers, speedy service, and decent food. It was perfect after a busy day of touring around.

Always fresh, always fun and of course always great sushi. A small cozy location...worth waiting for a spot at the edge of the train ...select your favourite sushi from the train as it loops around the chef. Intriguing watching the sushi being created.
