“Same Old Song”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I'd give the food a solid 3 stars, however get real, this is not what paying high prices is all about. I rate the ambiance a big O stars simply based on excessive noise and very poor seating arrangements. If you are satisfied by waiting for a few good, non cafeteria seats, then rate it higher for your self, not me. The service can vary anywhere between 2 to 4 stars but when you toss the host in the pile 1 to 2 stars at most. However try to talk to the manager - good luck - don't care - so a big - 1 for the staff. By the way, please don't go unless you like wasting big bucks.

“Best Restaurant in Northern California”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I've been addicted since the day it opened. If I could have arranged it we would have had our wedding reception here!
Consistently highest quality raw fish; talented chefs prepare wonderful meals. If you don't care for sushi you can still have a top notch dinner from the cooked items. Spicy-crunchy scallop roll best ever.
Now that they offer a selection of draft japanese beer it is even better.
Sometimes we've waited an hour for a table in peak season, but it is worth it.

“Fabulous, Fun, and Great Variety of Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I was with a family group of seven, all ages. We tried a diverse amount of menu items, from the daily special, to a number of sushi rolls, tempuras, gyoza, miso soup etc. EVERYTHING was supurb. Quality of food as well as plating were all top notch. Service also was excellent, knowledgable and prompt, even with a busy lunch crowd. Location on Miracle Mile also very good and for quality/quantty of food, prices very fair. Will definitely return.

Excellent Sushi bar and restaurant. Always very crowded, especially for the after work crowd. Down on the Miracle Mile. A fun place to be
