Great food, great service. We sat at the sushi bar and watched them work their magic; many creative combinations. We had California roll and two other chef specials and they were excellent. Highly recommend!

We are sushi snobs, and we loved this place. The cuts of Sashimi were delicious and the sushi rolls were equally good. Very clean tasting and refreshing. Our server, Lana, (also the bartender) was exceptional and despite being very busy she ensured we had excellent service. We will be back!

Came here because of TA reviews. It lived up to the reviews and more! Fresh sushi and great service. Parking is crazy in Asheville but the walk is worth it. Highly recommended.

The restaurant was full and we saw there was an available table so we decided to try their vegetarian sushi. The waitress told us about their vegetarian roll that is not on the menu. It contains avacado, cucumber, oshinki, carrot, and yamagobo. We also ordered the delicious wild mushroom with cream cheese, and potatoe rolls. A green house salad with... More

My husband tried one of the noodle bowls and it was also... More

When we arrived there was a couple rushing out and the whole thing seems odd. Later we found out that the couple had slipped on the bill. We felt so sorry for the server, however she remained professional throughout our dining experience. The sushi here is top notch and the staff super friendly. We have been on the lookout for...
