Great little place. Not very big so you may have to wait for a table at peak times. Always great food & friendly staff. Don't plan a visit if you are in a rush they take their time and get things right. My husband loves the sushi and the have have plenty of options for non seafood eaters as well.

If you are looking for a real Japanese sushi- this is not the place. However the fish is fresh. Hamachi Kama was very good. Service was exceptional - it made our evening. We sat outside, it was great, inside was packed and smelled like fried food. Prices are reasonable.

Sushi? check. Authentic japanese Cuisine? check. Small, intimate atmosphere at a resonable price? check. Try the Yakisoba, it's great. And the Tempura is the best ever. EVER!! You won't be dissapointed.

A friend and I arrived around 1 o'clock for a late lunch, and the place was still packed up until we left around 2:30. It's a small building with tables close together, and a very busy staff. There were no open tables so we sat at the sushi bar where customers order directly from the sushi chef. However, we didn't... More

This is the place to go if youre craving sushi. The food was great and affordable. I got the syringe bento box which consisted of soup, salad, two pieces of nigiri, a California roll, and a traditional roll for thirteen bucks, and it was more than enough food. The restaurant was a little small and crowded, especially for two in... More

Best in every way. Earthy looking place, great staff, inventive food, easy parking, just plain fantastic. Sushi chef looks like Paul Bunyan and is a delightful Northern Idaho guy who will talk to you while he wields a very sharp knife. Everything was and is great. Order the Creme Brulee for dessert

Most times there is standing room only. There are a few tables outside right on 4th street, so cars whiz right by you. Inside is tight. But all of it works somehow. This is a kitchy, happening place where anyone who loves sushi has been here a time or dozen. The menu is simple, but everything on the menu is... More
