This place is hard to find, it's quaint and low key, but worth the effort. The food and service is excellent! For sure we will be back, lunch and dinner is the best! Bento lunch is yummy!

This has to be some of the best sushi I have tasted. I would recommend just letting the chef "do his thing" and not even bother with the menu .... unless of course there are just some things you don't like then let him know....More

Bento lunch costs $12.95 and portion is like an appetizer. Food is mediocre at best. Avoid at all cost.

The sushi here is delicious! Everything is super fresh with substantial fish in both the nigiri and the rolls. They artfully prepare the dishes. An awesome local spot.

This cozy Japanese restaurant serves excellent sushi and other delicious Japanese dishes. It is very tiny, so reservations are recommended especially during peak times. I especially like the soft shell crab rolls.

After reading reviews posted here and Yelp, I was prepared to leave if not satisfied by service and/or food offerings. I was most pleasantly surprised by our server's welcoming greeting upon our arrival as Guests 4 & 5. Within 5-10 minutes after our arrival, 14-15...More
