“Sushi but not as we know it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2009

If you're a sushi fiend and understand the nuances of the art of sushi flavours and exotic ingredients, this is the place for you. If not, you will wonder why the bill is $520 for 4 people (with a bottle of sake). The place is pretty basic in decor with balsa tables etc. But those in the know rave about the food, so it's the choice for those who want sea urchin.

“Wonderful sushi. Always...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2008

Wonderful sushi. Always top-of-the-line fish, and lots of japanese fishes, including Kohada and Bonito. Very skilled chefs who are a joy to talk with. I haven't had many of the other dishes, but the sushi is just about perfect, and the service is stellar.
