amazing food

Excellent food. The wait staff were very professional and courteous. Japanese with a European influence. I still think about the meals we ate today. Maybe not one to take the kids too. Myself and my husband had a lovely romantic dinner. They also offered many varieties of Sake to try.

We ate here 2 nights in a row because the rolls were too die for! Tuna, yellowtail, spicy crab mix- they tasted fresh. Well done. Highly recommend

Sushi was finest quality. Always amazed at how fresh and delicious it is on the coast. We ordered based solely on the waitress recommendations. Awesome. Could've returned many nights in a row.

Really enjoyed the variety of sushi here -- quite unique, but then again, I don't live in an area with a lot of good Asian cuisine. Only downside - it was really, really loud - at least where we were sitting.

Overall... service was decent. Food was decent (not spectacular). My main gripe, was expensive... a few of the dishes: 1. Crispy prawns look better than they taste 2. Tempura lobster - best thing we ate all night 3. Sushi rolls: Street fighter - not bad Hotter than hell - too much vinegar Crunchy lizard - nice

Some of the best Sushi I've ever had!! We had the standard Spicy Tuna Roll and Cali Roll, which were good. We also had the Extreme Tarantula roll which was amazing! The Seafood Gyoza is also worth a try! We also tried the Blood Orange tea......most hot tea tastes like hot water to me (lol) but this definitely had a... More

I have been coming here for happy hour regularly for the last few years and the value for the quality of sushi is amazing. Their beer list won't win any awards but it the plum wine is worth trying!

We loved this place for the most part. Great vibe, lots of young people, terrific sushi. Initially, we loved our waiter, but when we asked him about what Sake to get, he suggested the special of the night, which he liked alot. We said fine. Then he returned and said the last bottle had sold out, but he had a... More

Amazing. The sushi is tasty, like an explosion of flavor in your mouth, you get a ton (one roll is like two) and the sake is good too! (drinks are a little pricey though)
