It is OK sushi and OK clam chowder. The tall draft beer is served in the twelve ounce glasses that are shaped to look like a pint. Makes me suspicious when they try to cheat you out of a little draft beer. Prices are a little higher than I expect. The sales tax is ten percent which is higher than... More

I love this place! They have awesome sushi, and incredible non-sushi items for those who like the cooked stuff. =) Definitely give it a go!

Decent sushi on mid King. I usually go for the after hours downstairs where you can usually find a lively crowd with decent music and drinks. If you are up for it, dancing might even be on the menu!

This was a fun small local sushi restaurant. The selection was good and very tasty, the wine was great and the wait staff was more than helpful and friendly. They have trivia nights and I believe karaoke. I would definitely go back.

My husband brought me here for my birthday dinner with some friends and we had a blast! The sushi was good - lots of super spicy offerings and they bring it out in either a boat or a bridge. Decent beer selection, fun atmosphere. Do not miss Friday night karaoke. Even if you don't sing it's a sight to behold... More

OK, so we were a little hesitant about this place after reading some of the reviews, but we had a reservation on Valentine's Day, so decided to give it a try. We are not sushi fans, so can't speak to that, but the appetizer and entrees we had were very good. The crab-stuffed shrimp were fried tempura-style and were huge... More

Pass this one by--the sushi is not fresh. For a restaurant that claims to be about fish and sushi, not at all impressed. Have tried it twice thinking maybe I had caught it on a bad day--nope. Atmosphere not that great either. Sorry!

Managed a last minute reservation via OpenTable. The ambience was mediocre, but the food more than made up for it! The shrimp BLT springroll is pure genius! One hint: if you're going to have an aquarium as decor, CLEAN IT! My daughter counted 6 dead fish.

This was the one place that me and some business people went out for a couple of drinks and karaoke and we had a blast! We really loved how friendly and inviting the bartenders and locals were. But DO NOT try the absenthe shots! They were strong and tasted like hot black licorice!
