Haven't had a bad meal here yet. Always consistent, always delicious. Arrive with an appetite and try as many options as possible. The sauces are creative and different and complement the dishes perfectly.

I went here on a recommendation of a business associate and was totally blown away. I have going to the same sushi restaurant for over 30 years in Campbell CA and have always held them up as the benchmark for what sushi should be. The fresher the better. From the moment I sat down at the sushi bar Danny took... More

Great service and wonderful fresh sushi. They have brown rice as well. The sashimi is always fresh and tasty.

I've eaten better sashimi, nigiri, poke, teriaki, salads, etc. at Whole Foods and H-Mart for less than 1/2 the price. The only non-depressing menu item of the 20+ that our group of 4 sampled was the tempura. Table was sticky,acoustics awful, server wouldn't allow a cheap cucumber roll to replace the more expensive ones offered with the bento box. A... More

The food is really good here. The decor is very cosmopolitan. It's a great restaurant except for the noise level. I love to go when e there are very few people. It's hard to hear each other at a table when the place is full. We eat fast and get out so we can go somewhere and talk. If you... More

We live over an hour away, but I would seriously consider driving that far for this sushi. It was some of the best I've had. The California roll was fantastic, as was the Surf & Turf. We sat at the bar and watched them make it. So while the restaurant itself is small and in a strip center, it was... More

I've eaten here a number of times and I've always enjoyed it. The only downside is that it's very popular so there can be a wait during busy times like Friday night.

I've always had great food here. I truly do think they have the freshest sushi and sashimi in town. I love that they have bento boxes for the kids. It's such a great way for them to eat and try different things on the menu. On my daughter's birthday, they even brought her a little deep fried oreo with a... More

We went to Otoro with friends for an early dinner. We got seated immediately but it took a long time to get service. No idea what happened. The sushi rolls themselves were really only okay. Kind of bland and loosely rolled at best making them hard to eat. Everyone says this is the best place, but honestly we didn't find... More
