We eat sushi quite a bit. This was good food with good flavors. I would return and that says something.

Great atmosphere and wonderful food. Staff is very attentive and food arrived in a very short while. Will be back for sure. Prices are OK. Beers are a bit overpriced for what they offer. Have one before you leave and you'll save quite a bit.

wondering around downtown looking for a place to grab a bite when I spotted this on a Monday night. A lot of places are closed on Mondays so I was excited. Very nice restaurant with extremely helpful staff. There is a complimentary appetizer and salad if you eat at the sushi bar so I had more than enough food. The... More

This place was top notch. Some friends and I were out and about Athens and this place invited us in like we were best friends in their homes. The sushi is excellent, the atmosphere is perfectly casual, the service was perfect. If you are looking for great sushi (not good, great) in Athens, this is your place right here.

There's something about some places you can feel, right from the point when you walk in. Very warm reception. Not just competent, but a sincere server. She engaged with us about our hometown and briefly chatted about what brought us to Athens. The sushi and sashimi were GREAT! Everyone in the place was having a pleasant time. No gimmicks, just...

We were visiting my son for the weekend and stopped in here for dinner on a Saturday evening. The storefront is a bit deceptive, IMO. It doesn't look like much from the outside but on the inside the restaurant is very nicely decorated, modern, and more spacious than it appeared from the sidewalk. The service was superb. My son loves... More

Had the White Tiger rolls that often recommended by reviewers. They were good but not delicious, and I can't help but suspect that the fish that has so much spicy mayonnaise is not of the best quality. I'll have to try more of their food, including the sashimi, but my first impression is that it is a "contemporary" version of... More

I was in town for a few days and liked this place so much that I ate it for lunch and dinner! The atmosphere inside is very nice and all the waiters/staff are very accommodating. There is free Wi-Fi, which is a definite plus. The sushi was AMAZING, and everything I tried was great! I really like the Rollercoaster Roll,... More
