The options at this restaurant are limited, however, you cannot go wrong on anything that is offered. Ate here twice in the week we were visiting. The ahi tuna poke bowl is outstanding. Also enjoyed the smoked salmon roll. The family operating this business is...More

There is not an extensive menu. There is not a large eating area. But these two things are what make it special. Like looking for the pearl in an oyster, this is a pearl. The sushi is ultra, ultra fresh. Beautifully made and flavoursome to...More
