In Boulder for quite a while, so it must be good. The sushi is fresh and the sushi and sashimi lunch combos, and California rolls were very well made, with lots of extra decoration.

I like sashimi, and it is good here. The atmosphere is authentic, but that means it is busy and noisy. I have been here several times and it has always been busy.

If you'd like to have excellent Japanese food without breaking your budget, this place is for you! The mussels are to die for. I guarantee you've *never* had mussels like these! (And if you normally don't like mussels, you'll love these!)
