A very small restaurant, I suggest getting there early as it gets very busy and the restaurant fills not long after it opens. There is street side seating which is my preference because the restaurant is so small. The food is amazing!! My partner had the Pork Belly, and to this day it is the best Pork Belly I have... More

We dined here for my birthday lot long ago and we loved it. The restaurant is cosy and simply laid out with a small kitchen area exposed to the restaurant where sushi is prepared right in front of you.

A great Japanese restaurant serving simple and unbelievable food. Try the beef tataki and sashami - they are both really something. The seafood steamed in paper bag is also a treat!

Communal tables might not be for everyone, and they can have a serious impact on your dining experience. The key is sitting in front of the sushi chef watching him prepare your sushi to order. Nothing else matters.
