Went on a recommendation and it was nothing short of wonderful, from the service to the food to the atmosphere. Would recommend it to any sushi lover.

I was quite disappointed with the quality of the fish served. The tuna was grainy/ veiny. In addition, the sushi roll was served lukewarm. If it weren't for the sake and dessert I would have felt that the whole dining experience was a flop! I was at the restaurant with a client and was quite embarrassed.

As the mother of a picky eater sushi is never on the list of kid-friendly places we can go for dinner. Which is why my BF and I decided to have sushi on our date night. I've probably driven by Izakaya a hundred times and never thought to Yelp it. I finally did last night and was intrigued by all... More

Good quality sushi across the street from the Westin Colonnade. The service was quick and the sushi was quite good. I would definitely return when traveling to Miami.

After coming here for several years, it's sad to see the service of the place go so far down. I was basically ignored as I stood to be seated. Even after approaching the waitress several times. I had gone to the restaurant a week previously and noticed the quality of the food was not the same, but the service was... More

We go to this restaurant about twice a year. Food is always good (per my Japanese SO), service is good and there is a wide variety of food. However, my SO is not really keen on their salad. Price is a little higher than Benihana, shabu shabu being particularly expensive.

We were here on Monday night, First the parking is really good with a lot adjacent to the building. I recommend you try the small dishes on the chalkboard lining their wall, you will be very happy. Each dish is prepared with care and they are really good. We had Toro, Muscles and Chica's special and I would recommend each... More

A Coral Gables Japanese staple restaurant, where the owner prepping sushi at the bar will greet you with a loud, "Welcome" in strong Japanese accent. The place is usually packed for lunch where quick bento boxes come and go at a fast pace. A variety of plates are displayed daily on a chalk board for those who can't find their... More

Across the street from the Westin entrance. Consistently high quality Sushi, and wide ranging Japanese sea-food menu.

My husband and I often come here for lunch when we're in the mood for sushi and are in downtown Coral Gables. There is usually a man greeting you "Hello, how are you?" when you come in. It's usually easy to find a seat, although tables are close together and it can get a little noisy with the tile floors.... More
