Old School

I liked this place, it was old school Japanese. The service is what it is, Broken English, lots of smiles. The atmosphere is again old school, it's small with a nice sushi bar. We started with sushi. The menu is limited, lots of the usual rolls, they were all good. Then we had chicken, tempura... read more

Very friendly service. Fish is fresh. Limited offerings and uninspired presentation. Chef takes over and gives you what he makes for everyone all the time. Reminded me of sushi when it was first introduced to us in the 70s. Even the decor is old school.

The best sushi in town, at the most comfortable friendly setting. The food is always fresh and the sushi style is different. Hiro the owner has the best skills in making food your palate will want more of. The plum wine he composed for me with ice was exotic! I have been coming here for more than 18 years and... More

The fish is fresh and Tatsu and Hero take pride in what they prepare for you. We don't order anymore, just let them choose what to make until we are full. They start us with sautéed... More

This place was good fairly small. They had great sushi. Make sure to let them know if your not a fan of wasabi as they put it in all the rolls and on all the sashimi. The cooked food was OK not as good as the sushi. The tempura was good though.
