“Great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

Compared to other sushi restaurants, it's cheaper, and the quality is not compromised.

As for the food quality/taste itself, it's generally excellent, with slight fluctuation. Last time I had dinner there, Salmon Roe tasted bad, as well as smoked salmon. However Tuna and fresh salmon were very good.

Regarding the food variety, I feel it falls behind many other sushi restaurants in Lebanon, especially in the Wraps & Futo Maki sections. Note that it offers non-seafood/non-asian food options. Their menu is a bit clumsy, small, lacks images. I was never provided with a sheet to check the items I want, instead, I always type them down before the waiter comes, which is a bit inconvenient.

The area is tight, not very fancy, but clean. There's only one restroom afaik, and it's nearly impossible to find a good parking spot nearby, just by yourself. Valet parking is available.

Great quality, laid back ambiance, generous portions. Try their salads... I know, random in a sushi place, but really good!

“Afforable sushi, don't expect more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

Affordable sushi, small restaurant. Always packed with younger crowd. If you see tight on budget and you want to eat sushi, this is the place.
