This is a great locals' dining spot with great sushi and Asian-themed foods. The location is convenient and close to several interesting and hip Richmond neighborhoods. The food is really great. This is more of an eclectic restaurant than a sushi restaurant but they have great fresh sushi, made to order as well as interesting and tasty Asian salads and... More

Ate lunch here with my family over the past weekend. Great sushi and sushi-inspired dishes. Our server was prompt and gave us great tips on menu selection. My son got the bucket of tots which was huge. The Sticky Balls (pictured) were delicious. Not cheap eats, but the food quality was excellent. Good stuff!

This small establishment is crowded and loud, but the sushi rolls are on point! It's in a cool location too so you can bounce around some bars after.

The vegan hostess was so helpful in pointing out what we should order. Everything was so good, especially the tater tots. Small and loud, but lots of fun with great food!

The hostess and waitress made it very clear that our group of 8 attending on Karaoke night was nothing but an inconvenience. We sat for 20 min as our waitress watched us make eye contact and flag her down as she ignored. Will not come again.

Loved the noodle bowls. Perfect spices and seasonings! Will be back soon! The atmosphere is fun and the service was decent. The sushi was also good.

Gotta say, the bucket of tater tots was awesome, as well as the dipping sauce, and they give you a ton. But everything else (except the beer!) was pretty average at best. My wife had the spicy thai chicken, which wasn't spicy, and I had the teriyaki chicken sandwich, which was as thin as a McDonalds hamburger. The sushi we... More

Horrible health inspections and have been on the restaurant report on NBC 12. Terribly crowed, rude staff, food was gross and stale... Not a reason to ever go back!!!
