“Sushi-and lots of Sushi --A Very Nice Meal and Terrific Service”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Both the outdoor seating (heating elements keep it comfortable in the winter) and dining room are very nicely appointed. The new wave music was at a reasonable volume so that one could have a conversation. The wait staff was all female and they have all been (obviously) selected for their friendly demeanor and what seemed like a genuine interest in making sure the customers were well cared for. I had just arrived in Scottsdale from the East Coast so it was mid-afternoon but still dinner time for me. I think I sat down at about 4:15 pm but by the time I finished my meal an hour later the place was packed. Happy Hour runs from 4p-7p and there are a couple dozen items (including the fancy adult beverages) at half price. So this was an INEXPENSIVE meal. All the special alcoholic beverages looked great, and mine was excellent. The seaweed salad was good, there were scallions in salad which is not how it is typically prepared. The typical dressing had another ingredient, maybe lemon juice or a vinegar --- it did not taste bad, only different. The sushi chef seems to favor deep fried rolls and the use of eel sauce. The spicy tuna and spicy yellowtail rolls used chopped fish, which was mixed with the spicy sauce -- this method of preparing the roll to deliver more fish in a method to cover up imperfect fish and is a common practice, but it did taste good. We had several other items on the happy hour menu and they were all very good. I did not try the sashimi, which is of course the true test of any fine sushi dining. Regardless, during happy hour (happy 3 hours) you can have a great drink and 3 rolls for about $20. I would come back, even if it was not happy hour. The wait staff (and the person hiring and training them) all deserve an A+.

“Good!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Walked all over Scottsdale shopping district and picked this by reviews. Good sushi...big portions. High energy atmosphere - restaurant is small inside , but has outdoor area also. Definitely worth it.

“Sushi and shopping all in one!”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Great place to stop and have lunch or an early dinner after/during shopping at The Quarter. The atmosphere is high-end luxury, serene, the menu is great (expansive) and the wait staff gets a solid "A" in performance. The crowd was mixed - couples, young, singles, hip, weird…but I was there for a late (3pm) lunch. Super great sushi - will go back again and again. Parking garage was super-easy and the shopping is spectacular around the restaurant. Maybe have lunch, drinks AND dinner and spend the whole day there!

“Better than the slick facade”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our meal. The server was adorable and attentive. Rolls
reasonably priced and tasty. The outside looks a little night clubbie, but inside it was handsomely lit and conversation friendly.

Cool location in the Scottsdale Quarter. Good sushi and fun atmosphere. Happy hour is great and always busy, arrive early. Kids menu decent, but sushi is great. Enjoy, you will like.
