There are zero good sushi places in Columbia, South Carolina other than this place! The sushi is pretty good, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is really nice. It is small and draws a regular crowd. I love eating here.

Don't let the exterior or location keep you away. The food here is outstanding, service is friendly, and environment inside is wonderful. Everything is cooked fresh so it does not appear like a fast food joint. It is worth the wait. I had tempura shrimp...More

A little surprised that this restaurant has such good reviews. Fair to middling sushi at very expensive prices. Maybe Columbia's best sushi but not great in a broader context. $60 (inc tip) for a beer and a one-person sushi meal seems excessive for sushi that...More
