Freshest sashimi & sushi in town. The Edamame is special too.

You should never go to a heavily hyped restaurant two years after it opens. The chef seems to have moved on, the food, service and ambiance is so-so, and everyone just seems to be putting in their time until the official closing.

I had the much ballihooed omakase. Now the sushi and sashimi were nice, and I would go back just for them. But the appetizers, main dish and dessert? Blech. I thought there would be something special for the cooked dish, but it was just salmon (the girl said it was sea trout, but it was salmon) and a boring cream sauce. The appetizer included unripe heirloom tomatoes and a gritty vichyssoise. And dessert was a little fruit and what I'd swear was McDonald's parfait yogurt.

Thank Detwom

Sashimi is very good. Try the Bluefin Roll, it has a very unique sauce on top of it. Price is a bit on the high side.

I was excited to visit this restaurant and left quite dissapointed. the service was so so and the food quality was not upto par as other japanese restaurants i've visited. The plus would be that most people that work there are japanese, but with the poor service and dissapointing quality of food, I guess it doesn't say much whether the workers/owners are japanese or not.
