“great food, questionable service, appropriate for the true aficionado”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

you may only want to come here if you're the type of person that values quality over convenience; there have been times we've come where Shinji was the only person in the place, and service suffered. On the other hand, how cool is it to be served by the owner himself and certified master of his art? The food is great and I'm not sure if it's because it's more traditional or not, but it's not quite the same as the sushi you get in the big chain places, and I mean that in a good way. It's not overly expensive but it may take awhile to get your order placed and for the food to show up; however, if you just take your time, sit at the bar, order some hot sake (the sake he carries seems to be better than most I've tried) and maybe even tell him to serve you whatever he thinks is going to be best that day, and approach it with an open mind, it's guaranteed to knock your socks off if you know anything about good sushi.

Also note: don't bother calling because they've never answered the phone anytime I've called.
