We were there when the place first opened, and they're still there, so maybe they got their act together. Way over-priced, small selection, and just not to our liking at all. And we were so excited at the prospect of a new sushi place in...More

I've eaten here twice in recent months, both times for lunch, and been pleasantly surprised by the sushi, a tempura roll, and also a two-for-one deal. It is actually a little pricey, but the fish is fresh. Service has been uniformly friendly and efficient. The...More

A small neighborhood restaurant with a very nice variety of fresh sushi and other dishes. We have experienced good service combined with reasonable prices.

Ordered potstickers first, they were just average, nothing special. The sushi was good. Get the crispy California roll, it is amazing. Really liked the double salmon roll, very fresh. I didn't like the spicy tuna roll at all, it was really fishy.

We stopped here after an Ohio State - Berkeley Football Game....the Japanese restaurant we used to go to had changed owners and was no longer Japanese - so we stopped here instead. The food was very good - very fresh sashimi, excellent salad, good appetizers,...More
