Great asian fusion

Although it is under construction, it is worth finding your way to the door. The sushi is great as are the kama (tuna cheeks.) The spicy noodles are a personal favorite. The wine list is small but good and not too expensive and the drink they make with pineapple/jalapeno infused vodka is wonderful.

If you are looking for authentic Asian food, you are at the wrong place. If you like American style Asian food, this might be more something for you. As usual in Florida, the aerco is too cold so I preferred a place outside which was nice with a lounge beat in the background. The food was ok and the service... More

Finding this location is a task with construction/remodeling. It is a small very dimly lit restaurant with two bars, one a sushi bar and I seated myself at the bar. The one good thing I found in this restaurant was Kirin on tap. There was a staff of a bartender, cook, a sushi chef? and a waitress with only five... More

I was in town for work and was in the mood for sushi. I was traveling alone so decided to eat at the bar. I order a gator roll and kamikaze roll. Both were fresh and delicious. Best sushi I've had in Florida!

I visited this place for some dinner. The recommendation I was given by my waiter was absolutely spot on. Spicy sushi and sushi with a taste of green apple was a great combination. Already looking forward to my next visit.

The sushi is great here. You can't go wrong with any of their specialty rolls. I have actually had the Hong Kong noodles there too and asked them to make it extra spicy. They are phenomenal. Still find it dd eating noodles at a sushi restaurant!!

I actually stumbled upon this place and thought sure sushi sounds good. The sushi was fresh and tasty. The signature rolls were creative and they have a small patio and I was able to eat outside. I will definitely be coming back. Great job.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The sushi was good and the salad with carrot ginger dressing was fresh. The sauce on the zen noodle bowl needs more flavor, but we still enjoyed it. A good value and the server was very attentive.

A recent visit to watch Chef Jessie and his staff cook some great food included a spur of the moment special of mussels in boulibase broth. Along with some pesto crostini's the mussels were expertly cooked and perfectly presented. We had already ordered some other meals which we packed up and took home for another meal as the mussels were... More
