Rather than walk into this natives-love-it hole in the wall with a preconceived notion of what rolls you'll order, I challenge you to come in with an open mind. Chef Eddie is as deft with his blade as he is with his sushi selection. Order a few pieces of chef's choice nigiri. By letting a head chef be your guide,... More

Small and cozy place.... Sushi is delicious! The prices are decent. The atmosphere is a little noisy when crowded... I ate dinner around 8 and there was a waiting list so maybe you should make reservations. I came alone and it was a five minute wait.

A quaint little sushi place opposite HB parking which makes this a very convenient restaurant to eat at. No worries about getting street parking as HB charges only $5 flat. The food was very good and I had a green tea served in a cute little tea-pot. Service was good. We had a table by the window which was fantastic... More

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...
