“Creative sushi...fun place”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Didn't have a reservation, so sat at the sushi bar. Staff is very busy, but very welcoming. Cause we sat at the end of the bar, where they made the drinks, the bartender was multitasking, but was gracious at the same time, took our orders and was very knowledgable about the food. Recommended the Kale salad which was delicious. When the area cleared out by the sushi prep area, they all helped us move down the bar. We ordered two special sushi dishes and the black cod for dinner for the two of us and added one more roll to finish. I recommend eating at the sushi bar as it was very enjoyable to watch the chefs prepare all the dishes. This was one of the more expensive meals we had in Vail, but I think it comes with the location. Definitely be adventurous and try their special sushi dishes... They are worth it.

“Sushi..”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

This was one of my fav places to eat in Vail! The sushi itself and the range available was excellent...fresh and really tasty. The service was also top dollar, with a wealth of help on hand to explain everything!

“Amazing atmosphere”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great sushi in Vail Village. Someone ordered for me so all I can say is it was excellent. Order sushi and take it back to your place for something very special.

“Not Nobu so don't charge as such!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten at all the best places in vail over the last week,
Here the Food was served out of order and for what it was , was outrageously overpriced , atmosphere felt like a bar ,
service was average and the bill was just short of a similar meal at Nobu the night before.
Won't be back.

“Best Sushi!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Been going there since they first opened. Going into their third year, sushi is better than ever!
Small, very cozy, great service, no reservations for sushi bar. If you want a table, be sure to make a reservation!
