Our family loves sushi, and since Harusame is nearby, we often choose this nice little restaurant for our sushi dinners. Good quality for the reasonable prices, pleasant atmosphere and service.

Great for lunch or a quiet dinner. Food is excellent, sushi is really fresh and cooked dishes are tasty. Atmosphere is really quiet though, but service is good and servers are helpful.
