We got seated quickly for lunch. Service was friendly and prompt. We ordered the salmon sashimi, salmon sushi and eel avocado roll with seaweed salad and miso soup and the chicken teriyaki bento box. All were very fresh and tasty and friendly on the wallet.

Good atmosphere and ambience. However, I made a reservation with high expectations for good Japanese fare but was let down. The first item, the Ocean Tartare, was not fresh. The sushi rolls that followed were filling but lacked flavour, and the rice was not of...More
