This was the best sushi I have ever eaten. The unagi, ahi and uni were absolutely melt-in-your-mouth divine! Come with a hungry tummy because you will want to try everything they have to offer.

Live music and great service in a classic bar location that doesn't look or feel like a sushi restaurant. Fun spot with good food, not the best "value" as typical hotel prices so that's why it gets 4 stars vs 5.
