I think it's a row house converted to restaurant, along with several adjoining ones. That makes it a little quirky and that added to the fun. We went with a younger couple who are way more into sushi than we are, and helped us make some choices. Sushi was their main dish and we had more of a sushi "side"... More

Fairly good food but a bit pricy. Stairs were difficult to manage and the rest room should have been much cleaner. No comparison to the multitude of sushi places in other cities or in Japan.

This truly was an outstanding experience. This is like having a piece of Japan authentic cuisine in US soil. During my life I have visited Japan over 10 times and had never experience a Japanese restaurant outside of Japan like this one. Starting with Kirin beer which is my favorite. Then goes the miso soup, which transported me to Japan... More

I came here this afternoon based on the reviews and wasn't disappointed. For appetizers, I got the rainbow roll, which was very good. Good cuts of sushi and the taste was very fresh. For the main meal, I got the chicken sesame. This came with miso soup and salad. The soup was pretty good, the salad was okay. The chicken... More

I am not a fan of sushi with cream cheese, fried ingredients, etc. I like to taste the main ingredients, and Momo lets you do that. The fish was fresh and they had some local specials. Be prepared to wait a bit, as the place is relatively small and they don't take reservations, but we thought it was worth the... More

The establishment is small in size, but, the hour wait to be seated was worth it. The atmosphere was nice and the sushi was good. The customer service was good and I will visit again.

Great sushi at a low key restaurant (no reservations). Grab a seat at the bar and order the spicy special rolls. My definition of great is when I don't need the soy sauce and my sinuses are still clear from the intense bite of the sauces. Great sauces by the sushi chef - and of course great fresh fish. This...

Decent sushi and sashimi served in this intimate restaurant a bit "Off Kings Street". Large menu. Good selection of Japanese beers.

Place is kind of small, so expect some waiting time. Ambient is great, service attentive and always following up at the table, sushi was awesome, and fast serving. Ordered chicken teriyaki besides sushi and at least for me has been one of the greatest that I have tasted. Highly recommended!

I saw the Google rating, decided to give a try (knowing that I should not have high expectation), and when I walked out of the restaurant, I saw many people are waiting in line for this place. I am not sure why but for my personal experience as a tourist, I would not recommend this place especially if you have... More
