Even though a restaurant is not busy, waiters and chefs do not speak loudly about private stuff and how tired they are inside the restaurant. Most of the staff didn’t seem to like there job. When you have a sushi bar with seats where guests...More

Lunch for 6 on a not busy early Sunday afternoon resulted in pretty good food marred by sporadic service. This is one of the prettiest Japanese restaurants I’ve seen recently. I thought even the men’s room had been given some decorating thought. The food was...More

The sushi and fish here are excellent and the design of the room gives it a cool vibe. It’s not the cheapest sushi around but is always fresh and inventive. Try the Sasa Roll (a take on spicy tuna) and the North Main Roll (tempura...More
