The food is good!

That's it for compliments! The service was poor and surly. The advice we received was not acceptable and we had to order extras as the portion size was small. We shared ice cream for desert and the server gave us forks to eat with! Very pretentious and stupidly expensive and best advice is to go to... read more

The sushi was the most innovative I have ever tasted! Very good! The steak is vacuum packed in duck fat, then cooked very slowly and finished on the grill, perfection...medium rare..YUMMY! The food was sooo good we went 2 days in a row!

Had dinner here with friends last week. Our drinks and food came in a timely fashion, and our waitress was friendly and efficient! The restaurant was very crowded, but staff was adequate for good service We shared several items! All of our selections were delicious, with beautiful presentation! We will be back!

The shock of the menu was enough at the beginning, but I really wanted sushi! The food was good,but way overpriced. I can get better food for the same price in Winnipeg. They need to lower their prices or get better food.

Love this place and they never let us down! We asked if they could make our new sushi favourite of California hand roll with a quail egg and they did it beautifully - wish I could show a picture as the presentation was super! My husband had the delicious Peking duck and friends enjoyed the snapper udon and clams and... More

what an amazing dinner! My husband and I split the mussels and clam appetizer, and 2 types of sushi rolls. WOW the appetizer was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. It was garlic, cheese, onions mussels, clam and just a hint of chorizo mixed together in an explosion of flavor. The restaurant was clean and the server... More

The sushi was really yummy, everything was very fresh and delicious. We ordered the Macadamia Hogfish roll, the Best Crunchy roll, and the Tuna Squared roll along with Salmon Nigiri. The macadamia hogfish roll was really good - we had never had hogfish before but really liked it! I also LOVED the tuna squared roll. The best crunchy was good,... More

Waited over 40 minutes for food to arrive. Waitress forgot to bring out our drinks. Food was decent, about the same as any normal sushi restaurant. There was no sushi roll under the price of 15 dollars. Each roll had 4 or 5 pieces. You can find the same or even better quality food at more reasonable prices at authentic... More

Some of the best sushi I had, short of being in Japan. However, the prices were very high; almost double what we pay in Chicago. Glad I went, probably would not go back because of the price. Service was OK as was the atmosphere.
