“If it wasn't for the service they would have had a 4 stars”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

The service is so slow. I have been there 3 times and each time it is the same slow, inattentive service. The sushi and maki are rather good, whereas the hot dishes are not so good (tempura and soft shell crab are way to oily)

“Unique experience with the open a la carte 38$ formula”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2011

That s new in Lebanon and
Maybe around town. Open sushi, a la carte, for only 38$. you can order whatever you want, as much as you can from the complete menu for only 38$. and the quality is just the same, as good as any normal order on week-ends.
Go try it you won't regret it.
