“My favorite sushi dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is no frills, top quality sushi at very reasonable prices. Don't expect to see the hand of an interior decorator at this place, just great Japanese food and a VERY loud "hello" as you enter. Make sure to check out the specials on the East wall.

“Decent sushi, nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2010

The sushi is ok here. I prefer rolls and this place has a relatively limited variety - which is a negative in my book. Fish was fresh, although mackerel/saba tasted differently from what it usually does (not as salty, perhaps that's a good thing but I didn't like it).
All in all it was ok, but I wouldn't bother going here on purpose - especially since better places are available nearby.
