“I can eat here everyday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

Speechless...great sushi. The texture of the rice was perfrct. I tried some tuna nachis, very original recipe with the wonton crust, delicious and creative. Also ordered sushi that had onion on top, it had a powerful but safe taste. Onions with panko on top of spicy tuna and avocado sushi... Engeniuos! Great service, very nice, elegant and chic... Perfect for chilling out. The peach sake is better than a dessert... If u like sweett drinks, try this one!

“Kanpai!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

I can't get enough of this place since I discovered the best way to enjoy the food here was to ask the chef, Tommo, to prepare a medley of special hot and cold courses. This means you're treated to something new and delicious on every visit. The price of your meal may be hiked up but you'll be so pleased that you spent the money.

I would actually elevate this restaurant to Best in CR based on my last two visits. We ate grilled octopus, seared salmon with a sesame sauce, yellow tail with a delicious miso sauce and all manners of tasty rolls. And not forgetting oysters on the half shell and seared diver caught scallops. This place is ridiculously good with a great sake menu to boot.
