Very busy restaurant with sushi bar. Located near bj's restaurant . Gets pretty loud inside. Very select menu. Lots of sushi choices.

The food is not bad but nothing amazing either, especially as there were 3 Japanese sushi chefs behind the counter. They were friendly with patrons & had shots of sake with some of the guests but we've tasted better coming from Japanese chefs.

The fried green tea ice cream tasted bland (& it's rare that ice cream doesn't taste great) & the noodles pretty standard. Perhaps we expected too much as we've had much better when real Japanese chefs were actually preparing the dishes.

We are locals and this is one of our favorite Sushi places. Be warned; like most sushi places it is very small. Try to go early to get seated at the sushi bar. Staff are really friendly and nice and the atmosphere is stylish. They have a great happy hour on Monday through Thursday with specail prices on beer, saki and appetizer items.

My granddaughter and I have our favorites and share them all since she and I do not eat sushi but everyone else goes straight for the sushi menu and order a great variety. They all enjoy it and say it is presented very well and tastes wonderful. It is usually crowded on the weekend but we always get a table quite fast. The service is good.

Exceptionally fresh authentically prepared seafood. No pretensions for fusion experimentation. This strip mall restaurant is clean and accessible but takes no reservations. Order off the specials menu for best value. Gets busy around 7pm and some special items may be gone after that. Not the best place to bring a first date, as the atmosphere has a certain chaotic tension.
