Turned up with no reservation, excellent service, got us seated outside after we had a cocktail in the bar. Great food.

“Wowie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Yum! Yum! Yum! Great food, atmosphere with good service. I would give them a 98% perfect score. I would deduct 2 because it would have been even better if we had a little advice on the timing of the delivery of various items...."that item takes quite a while; maybe you should order something that comes out quickly at the same time." But other than that, we thought it was just an outstanding evening.

“Cool vibes and fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

What a great place to take friends and get the West Hollywood ambience with wonderful food, service and crowd! We ate about 10 plates between the three of us and they were all excellent. I stretched the ceiling by trying the Spanish mackerel sashimi and it excelled. The sushi rolls were also great - definitely try the spider roll. The tuna plate with jalapeños was to die for. Great crowd too - we sat outside on a chilly night and we had plenty of warmth and no shortage of great people around us. Good place for friends, business, and romance and we could see plenty of all that there.

“Exceptional sushi, sake and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

This is a great sushi bar...everything we had was delicious, from the sake(beverage), the sake(salmon), the scallop, tunas, prawns, and rolls.
There's a great outdoor area with heat lamps as well as a huge indoor area. We ate on the patio and loved it!
Five stars!
