Unique spin or sushi. Loved every dish. Go with an open mind, don't expect traditional fare and you won't be disappointed. Get there early!

Clearly I'm either a complete sushi snob or missed the point on this place but went with a mate and thought it sucked. Waited 35 minutes for our first dish to arrive. They don't serve soy sauce (you have to pay extra for that) claiming there dishes come with their own unique sauces but of the two we ordered one didn't have any sauce and the other had a wasabi based vinaigrette which I didn't like. The rolls we had also fell apart when you picked them up because the chief had used warm rice which hadnt set and personally we thought they were over filled with crab meat and avocado (2 cheaper ingredients) and only had a small amount of actual selected fish included.

We then waited a further 25 minutes for 2 nigiri and in that time the one waitress working hadn't come over and asked if we wanted more drinks which we'd finished long ago. In the end we just lost patience, paid up and left for elsewhere.

Beautifully made and plated, artistic sushi. Teenie tiny place but we hit it right and got a table for two. Pricey but that's par for the course when it comes to good sushi. Try the crunch roll and the dessert desert.

Every time we are in Laguna, we take a chance to have a dinner in the restaurant. The problem is that there are 4 tables only there + sushi bar. The food is amazing! I'm happy to share all positive reviews. You wouldn't be disappointed. All complains of "local" people that the place is overpriced are just ridiculous. All dishes are very creative and almost art objects. Go there, wait for your sitting and enjoy!!!

I was in Laguna Beach and hungry for sushi and found this little place. If you are looking for standard fare sushi and hand rolls, don't stop here. If you want mouth watering, delectable bites of sushi art, you are in luck! I recommend to try all sorts of plates - you won't be disappointed. Everything we ordered was absolutely delightful. It was a little on the expensive side (it IS Laguna Beach after all), but I have no other complaints. Loved this place!
