This is my favorite place to eat japanese food. It is small, clean, good food and excellent service! The outside appearance can be misleading, you must go in and eat. Very busy = Fresh food. plan ahead.

I am always impressed by the fresh sushi made quickly .The wait staff are very attentive. The restaurant is very small and gets very busy so you must get there early. They are open for lunch and have great lunch specials

You have to arrive early to get a table so you don't have to wait over 1 hour to get in! We come here frequently. They bring you steamed muscle appetizer that is no charge. If you want to watch your carbs try the Nizi cucumber roll with no crab and the hand roll with no rice. I also like... More

Rolls were excellent. Only thing is that they are sliced on the thick side. Definitely will go back.

If you're in the area and LOVE sushi, this place is a MUST! You won't be disappointed! It's a small little spot and yes, they do get packed but it's worth the wait!

This place is usually packed on a Friday and Saturday night but the afternoons are nice and cozy. Superb hospitality and, when dining in, you get special perks with your meals. B.Y.O.B.
