“Good Happy Hour”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Happy hour is worth checking out. Be aware it is only available at the bar on the right side of the restaurant. A few unique items on the food menu. The Liquid Wasabi cocktail has the right amount of heat.

“What a surprise”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

After having a beer in the texas place down the road, we wanted to go somewhere that had something light and edible (that texas place was not a place that you would call edible).

We walked in here by accident - it was getting later in the evening and the place was about half full. My colleague ordered a selection of food and the waiter offered a suggestion on top of that, which was good. The quality was perfect, the timing was perfect and the atmosphere was pretty good.

Have to say that I tried the wasabi cocktail and it was delicious. Never thought about something like that before. Tasty with a little kick.

Overall a great place.

“Great Sushi - close to VZ Center”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Our family often eats here before heading to the Verizon Center. Other than feeling a little under-dressed if we are in Caps jerseys we love this place. Sushi is fresh, design is modern and chic and it's an easy walk to the VZ Center.

“I could eat here every day.”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

this place was a real treat. I didn't think a California Roll could really rock my world anymore but theirs did. I also recommend the rice bowls--perfect lunch!
