My family raved about the sushi. They said it was some of the best they had ever had. But I struggled to find vegan options. I had the seaweed salad and the vegetable roll which were both very good. The miso soup was not vegan. I wish they offered more vegan options such as a vegan teriyaki plate and brown... More

They open at 5 and usually there's a wait right away. Well worth the wait and price. Take a walk around Main street after dinner.

We love this place. Great cuisine, plum wine, varied choices. Pleasant ambiance. Busy most evenings; service can be a bit slow so plan a relaxing dinner.

Returned to eat here after a 14 year absence. It continues to be great and seems to have even gotten better. Hope to return when in the U.S. again next year. ENJOY

I always start off with the Torro; best ever and can match up with any place in Tokyo. creative sushi chefs, highest quality fish and healthy tempura as well. Expensive but worth every penny. Combo deals are worth it too

We found the restaurant by coincidence. It was very busy that night. Very friendly receptionist and service personnel. The oysters were fresh and delicious and the beef teriaki very tasty. The staff behind the counter perform magic, the preparation of the drinks and fruits etc are amazing. The restaurant itself is pretty basic but what counts is the excellent food... More
