I eat here regularly for lunch and am never disappointed. It can get quite busy during the peak lunch hour so come early if you don't want to wait. Sushi is fresh and delicious. Friendly service and very efficient.

I tried this restaurant for the first time. I had the daimyo, the spicy tuna and the teriyaki spare ribs. I liked the ribs. Service was great.

One of my favorite places in the Gables for a sushi lunch. Their lunch special is actually enough for two people. Besides your main choice, you get shrimp and veggie tempura, California roll, salad and Miso soup. Quality is great, all this for $9.50. Restaurant is on the small side and can get a bit noisy, but not so bad... More

This Sushi restaurant appears to be a local favorite. Although it had many specials, we opted for more traditional sushi rolls which were served loosely wrapped and soggy -- not very impressive.

We've loved going for sushi for over 30 years and have seen sitting at the actual sushi bar and ordering direct from the chef, all but gone away. Some have even taken away even sitting at the original bar in favor of all orders go thru the wait staff. Well here you can still at least sit at the bar.... More

What a great place! If you are in the Gables area, and in the mood for fresh sushi, this is the place. Great service and delicious sushi. The Bento box is very good also. Great prices too! The place is not too big but the tables move quickly. Not a long wait at all. It is a bit loud for... More

I ate here years ago and then stuck with Matsuri - I know Japanese food and it doesn't hurt that the local Japanese biz guys always go there. I went back with my wife last week and loved the place. Blackboard specials, extensive menu with no panasian variants, lovely wait staff, great atmosphere and decent prices. I opted for cold... More

This place is bustling, because everyone in town knows the sushi is really good. There is mind boggling menu written on the walls in chalk. I never can figure out where to start there, but it adds to the charm, Its not fancy, but its very good! They serve your food fast, and the menu is decent. Great local spot!

What a terrific experience! After seeing patrons coming & going, a friend suggested we try out Izakaya. Thrilled to report that we had a fantastic time ... The setting is high energy, and suggest you arrive early as they fill up quickly. Lots of hustle & bustle, all in a good way. There is a sushi bar, and a modest... More
