“A great place for fresh sushi!”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

On recommendations from friends I tried out this sushi restaurant and was truly impressed although I am not a big sushi fan or so I thought. My visit here changed that with the freshness and variety. I definitely recommend giving it a try!

“Not bad but don't go out of your way.”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

This review is for the Dartmouth Location.

First this location has very little atmosphere. I've been here about a dozen times and each time there is someone whom I presume to be a manager or owner sitting at the Sushi bar doing paperwork. Quite unprofessional.

That said I have never had issue with the servers they have always been quite attentive. On this visit I found our server to be exceptional. We had a few people at our table who had never been here and they had lots of questions. She did an excellent job of answering questions and making suggetions.

I always get Maki and my wife always gets the Terriyaki dinner. Their salad is the best in the city, although a little on the small side, fantastic dressing. Miso soup is average. What you would expect. Terriyaki is shredded steak on rice with a few roasted veggies. It's fine but nothing exceptional.

Part of the joy of sushi is the presentation. There is nothing remarkable about the presentation here, although it is better than what you get at Hamachi. The Maki is lined up on a rectangular plate with a strip of Terriyaki and spicy sauce down the side. That said the sushi is always fresh and tasty. They can be skimpy on the wasabi though.

Pricing is pretty average, and service is quick. Expect to pay about $40 for two, before drinks and tip. Stop in for reliably consistent food but don't go out of your way.

Have been to their place in Dartmouth Crossing twice. No complaints at all. Food was good, price was reasonable, staff was pleasant. Would eat there again.

“Good service but bad sushi”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

I think it is the most popular sushi restaurant in Halifax. However, it does not offer the best Japanise food. Most of the people go there bacause it is clean and well decorated.
The food lost its authentic asian taste. The menu is pretty limited. I would not recomend their combo sets, since I could not eat the salad at all and miso coup was too solty. I will not go there again.
