Yup, I over ate again. Boyd out did himself. We brought some friends that never had sushi and instantly made converts. We had their Avocado Bomb (Avocado stuffed with Soft Shell crab cooked to crispy perfection) and The Lobster Volcano (Lobster and crab roll covered in Lobster and Crab in a delectable sauce. Excellent service and we left with the... More

A wonderful gem to discover in downtown Corpus Christi! Everything was great, but the seaweed salad and Texas Thunder Roll were amazing.

This place was recommended by the hotel staff where we were staying at. Everything was ok..(but not great) until I found a roach in my food. Decided to just pay and leave to avoid the embarrassment

Had some fantastic fresh sushi here with friends! The waitress was very friendly and extremely knowledgable. Had an amazing sampler plate and a delicious quail egg. Enjoyed the casual atmosphere and would definitely return.
