The food is SUPER over priced for the product you get.... does not really make sense. Cute atmosphere. I only enjoy going there for the amazing and very crisp and well delivered vegetable tempora. Oh, and the little private seating nooks up front, which leave...More

When my business partner and myself walked in we were the only patrons there. I figured "Oh Boy" and thought that the lack of customers was a bad omen. I was wrong. The service was wonderful and so was the food. A very large assortment...More

I enjoyed more this restaurant last year. My experience this year was a kind of deception. Everything was good. But it wasn't amazing. My fav dish was the sashimi Tasmanian salmon. It was very good and fresh. But the naguro sashimi and the rainbow roll...More
