This restaurant is absolutely worth it even at full price, but bargain hunters must check out their weeknight Sake Social Hour. The best sushi in Houston at grocery store prices, plus $3 warm or cool sake. The service is impeccable, ambiance is modern but cozy, and of course the food is perfect - fresh and creative.

They told our party of 5 it would be a 20 minute wait. 45 min later they ushered us to a two top that was 32" X 32" . . for five to eat? Really?

Great place!! Amazing food, especially for me that I love Japanese/Asiatic food. On the contrary my husband is not a fan of these kind of food, there he still find a very nice dishes to taste. The only "negative" thing is that it's expensive......

I have been lucky enough to dine at this restaurant two times so far. Each time has just a wonderful culinary experience with the freshest most delicious food and delicate flavors I've had in Houston. I strongly recommend this place, even if you walk in. Just know you will wait a minimum of an hour for a table. It's well... More

It can be difficult to get a reservation, and you will see folk lining up for vacant spots if someone does not show up for their reservation. Why, you ask. Because it is worth it, the food is that good, in fact some of the best sushi in H town.

Went out for sushi after a long business day as the recommendations were very good. Do no expect a cheap 'all you can eat' formula here, this is a place for exquisite rolls and nigiri's that are way off the standard tasting. The balance of the suchi's was all very good but a special call out to the Madai (Japanese... More

The experience was amazing!! Had heard of this place for almost 1 year and never had a chance to getaway. Hubby and I had birthday celebration with our best friends. Great food, we did the 5 tastings and all 5 were great. The fried chocolate mile and Brussels sprouts was hands down a hit. I have gone again since my... More

The sushi and sashimi is outstanding, the waiter that we had was patient, most knowledgeable, and excellent. A very enjoyable evening. They could obtain some higher-end white wines.
