“Real crab not krab”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We saved our anniversary night out until we went to Tahoe. We had been going here for years and the new owners do not disappoint. We were extremely happy the menu was a lot like it was in past years (20). We love the fact that they use real snow crab in all the dishes that called for crab. This is a sign of excellence in our book and all the seafood was incredibly fresh and well prepared. The gyoza was crisp and not oily. The sake was equally as good and our server asked what I liked and choose a cold and perfect accompaniment for our menus selections. Service was prompt and very friendly. Highly recommend this place for sushi enthusiasts.

“Just outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

When you walk into a place and the staff know most the patrons you are in the right place. Particularly when on a busy roadway in a tourist area. The food is very fresh with with some standards as well as some designer rolls that were excellent. Well worth going to.

“Skip the rest, just go here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The restaurant is on Highway 50 which I was worried that it is just another tourist catch all, we wanted sushi however and decided to give it a chance. The thing we quickly noticed was the owner and the two sushi chefs knew a good number of people in the place. This was an indication to us that the local residents of the Lake continue to return. They have a good variety of food on the menu and some great specials. It is fresh, clean and just excellent in our opinion.

“Good sushi, fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

The menu is quite creative - some interesting variations on favorite dishes. It is a bit pricy but then it's also a bit different - so worth the trip. It's a bit more 'posh' than Off the Hook (my local favorite) and well worth a visit.
