Surprised by the incredible reviews. I found this place to be OK, the outside setting nice, and the food just above average. Haven't eaten there in a while but I recall Koi being way better than this. Sorry, just not a great experience. Nothing truly special about this spot.

A fantastic menu with many tempting options of super fresh Japanese dishes. Hard to choose a favourite but this sushi , sashimi and the hand rolls are fantastic. Great service, and an in house DJ that sets a good vibe in the entire place. Very reasonably priced too. An amazing building with great creative decor.
