Outstanding, as Always!

By far, one of our favorite restaurants in TC. We've dined here countless times and have nothing negative to say! (Well, maybe the large Friday evening crowds!) The sushi so fresh and there are always specials everyday.

The best sea bass I've ever had! Service is just about perfect here. The food is beautifully prepared and plated. The only distraction is the music which is as per usual in most establishments, too loud.

Service was wonderful. We had the rainbow sushi and crab rangoons and all was great. Great fresh taste in all, including the sauces. Will be going here again.It was cheaper than a meal and cocktail at Ruby's.
