Food was excellent. Servers and staff were all pleasant but they were very busy. So the timing of the customer seating was not handled well and delivery of the food was sporadic. The chef was kind enough to send out a free treat for us...More

Glad we came in for early dinner as the place is small and was packed before we finished. Delicious sushi. Weakest part of the choices we made was the ceviche. After having been to the co-joined Whet Noodle, figured we would try this side of...More

This is a very small eclectic place with great sushi. My wife and I tried several dishes, sushi and non-sushi and all were excellent. Good value and good service.
