“Ignore the building and enjoy the fish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

I've been here a few times and if you can get past the very tired interior and focus on the fish, then it's quite good. Even more so considering the price.

Service is slow (but does have a smile) and as I like to sit on the balcony you may not be seen, but the best way around that is to get up and grab some attention.

I've had a cross section of the menu, sushi, sashimi, tempura, the bento boxes, salads and can't complain about the food, in fact half the time the bento boxes are just too much.

I'll be back when I'm in town and want a cheap Japanese hit.

“Don't mind the crappy entrance, it's worth stepping inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

The entrance to this place is looking quite crappy, but take my word for it, it's worth it to go inside. The place is rather large in the second floor of the house with a view to the main street. Food is good in my standards as is the atmosphere. The minuses are sometimes slow service and the prices which are on the high side.

“Delicious food but service a little slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2011

We had a great time, great food and the bill wasn't too bad. We had more food than any of us could really eat. I wouldn't get the advertised all you can eat. It doesn't seem like a great deal.
