Very average, fish wasn't anything special and a limited menu. Refuse to give tap water, and water they charge for is clearly tap water Service is polite and friendly. Wouldn't recommend though and wouldn't return

Simply put, good sushi, absolutely worth a visit. Not a whole lot that separates this place from a lot of others though. I appreciate the sake options and a pretty decent size menu, but it's also very typical for today's sushi with a lot of...More
