Good sushi and tacos with a good been list. Very informal with slightly grumpy service the night we were there (Monday night for football) but we had several rounds of ordering trying different taco and sushi. Everything was really well done.

Excellent sushi. We usually go elsewhere for sushi and never knew about this place at all. However, service was pretty slow and it was pretty busy for a Wednesday night. We were very disappointed with the mixed drinks though, they were very watered down.

It is literally just like a bar. ..with good sushi. I usually go in the evening/late evening and I wouldn't take children then. Maybe earlier in the day you could?
