The location is great, very easy to get to, and it definitely lived up to the hype! The sushi was so good we wanted more, unfortunately we didn't have the room for it! We will definitely go back when we visit Asheville!

Delicious sushi and plum wine. Nothing special but a good solid dining experience that pleased everyone in our party of 7.
