i am a vegetarian. Expected a couple of choices on the menu. Was not thrilled about going to this place. I was pleased with the experience. Food was very good and service was great. Went again a few days later. Very similar experience.

it has been better and I don't know who is responsible. Generous cuts of sashimi, yes but if they slices it thinner it would be way easier to eat, think Japan, they don't do those XL pieces hard to chow on. Taste and freshness very...More
