“Great little sushi place hidden off the pedestrian mall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

I got a tip about this restaurant while on a plane to Korea, touting it as the best sushi in Charlottesville. I went for lunch, had the yaki soba noodles, which were freshly prepared, and included a nice selection of veggies that worked with the noodles. The sushi at the other tables looked beautiful. service was great and the atmosphere was low key, cafe tables and a few booths in a fairly small space, with an area where you could sit on the floor. Warm and friendly service, and good, well-priced meal.
