This place is always very busy and loud. They don't take reservation for small party, so prepare for a long wait on the weekend. We went here for their fresh sashimi and yummy sushi rolls. The presentation was pretty and service was great. It's worth the wait.

We were looking for a Sushi place driving near the area and found this one on Tripadvisor. I haven't written a review in months but this place totally deserves it. Everything was perfect, super fresh and delicious. The king salmon nigiris were my favorites. Great service and reasonable prices. You must visit!

A really great place to have Japanese food with friends and family. I highly recommend most all items on the menu. It depends on what you like for Japanese type of food but it is all good.

Wow! I visited this place twice during my stay, it was always packed and the food was excellent. The sushi rolls were enormous, fresh and some of the best I have ever had. The selection was varied and the specialities a stand out. Recommend the Agedashi Tofu...and spicy tuna spider roll - would return again and again

We went to this restaurant with another couple. This was a really hopping place that seemed to be a destination restaurant. It was tastefully decorated and completely full. Everything we had was terrific fresh and really quite unique. I would recommend this as a date place as it probably might be a tad expensive to take a family. Definitely not... More

The place can get crowded and there is a wait, but it is worth it. Get a seat at the sushi bar and custom order some rolls with flavors you like...don't forget to give the chefs some sake or beer as a tip. Great food.

I can't give it 5 stars, because it isn't as good as some sushi places in other cities, but it is for sure the best in Dublin. Sushi is very good, very fresh. Some of the fancy rolls are a little sweet, but mostly they are all great and not TOO expensive. The bar does a great job as well.... More

So tasty sushi! I loved our visit there. Really fresh fish, wonderful rolls with a lot of wow twists. We also had a bottle of excellent sake. And the last surprise was the bill - I think I never had such a great value for sushi experience.

I live just a few miles away from this establishment and used to come here weekly for my sashimi fix with fresh wasabi. I stopped going here about 2 years ago due to the insufficient air circulation ( the grilled/fried food smell that sticks on your body/ hair for hours afterwards- that dogs will chase you); and the long long...
