My favorite sushi place

This is a fantastic sushi place,We come here once a week, the happy hour is quite varied, the place is a bit congested but very cozy, the house salad with ginger dressing is exquisite.I have been to many sushi places but this is particularly one of my favorites

Food, service, value- wins on all three! The awards on the wall show that much of Tampa feels the same. When I saw " sushi happy hour" I admit I was a bit skeptical, especially when there's a sushi bar on every corner (it seems). Decor too- modern Asian with nice design touches (like paper parasols on the ceiling). Lunch... More

The sushi is great, if you like spicy order the spicy tuna and avocado salad. Best time to go is during the happy hours pries are very reasonable and it is the same sushi you pay double for after happy hour. Get ther early because happy hour lasts until 7 pm.

I've been to most of the popular sushi places in Tampa and this is by far the best. Some of the best rolls you can find. I've had most of them. They are all delicious! The location is not the coolest area in Tampa, but if you are looking for good food sometimes you can sacrifice "cool".

This is my go to place for great sushi. I love the atmosphere, it is very calming and peaceful. The place is always busy, but the low lighting and dark colors make it almost zen. The lunch special is a great deal, but the best deal is happy hour! The sushi is super cheap and still tastes amazing. I highly... More

The sushi was pretty good sand the server was very helpful and attentive. I wish they would have had happy hour drink specials as well. Either way you get a lot of sushi for the price. It's a really good value.

I do not want to sound snotty and I do not consider myself a sushi connoisseur (but I have eaten at Nobu, Morimoto, etc.) but the sushi was not good. The fish was paper thin and the rice was not good either. I do not know if it was that we went for lunch and they have a better quality... More

The personal is attentive, food is excellente...One thing you have to be there 15 min prior opening at 5:00pm. I fnot you will be waiting for a long period of time. Other than that we loved My husband and I go at least 2 or 3 times per week.

The decor was lovely. The seating was plush in some areas however I didn't like sushi and the amount given. It was tasteless and small. I have had better.
