“Great little Japanese Bistro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012

Live in Santa Rosa and were getting tired of the same old Japanese restaurants so decided to give this one in Windsor a try. Read some of the negative Trip Advisor reviews but none of them turned out to be true for us. You can either eat in the smallish, cozy bar area or the main dining room, or the sushi bar. We chose the dining room where the tables were nicely spaced. Had miso soup, Lady in Red sushi roll (wonderful!) and yakitori, along with a couple of drinks and it was plenty. Really enjoyed - will be back!!

“Beautiful presentation.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

I have visited this restaurant three times and have not been disappointed. The seafood is always very fresh and the menu offers some colorful and unusual but delicious combination of rolls. They do a good job with the tempura. Nice selection of saki and a tasting offering which is well priced if you want to try three different ones. Best to go here with some friends because it is a bit expensive and if you go by yourself, which I did once, it's easy to drop $50 on lunch. But you will leave satisfied.

“Average to good Japanese food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

We came in January so the place was kinda slow for a Saturday night. The service was good and the food was average. The cooked salmon roll wrapped in soy paper smelled and tasted on the fishy side. Yeah, I know it's fish but fresh doesn't smell. The sashimi was good and the yellowtail was excellent. I always grade a sushi bar by their yellowtail! The spicy Saigon roll was good and their green salad with seaweed salad mixed in it was also good. The spinach side dish was not good. They used frozen spinach! Fresh is cheap and so much better! There were a lot of fried appetizers on the menu and I guess anything fried always tastes good but I was looking for healthier and more authentic Japanese cuisine. I may go back to give it another try. The atmosphere, decor and ambiance was pleasant.

“Small, intimate, and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

Very nice place to have a meal--sign is small, so you might pass it by--but make sure that you don't miss it.
