“The best sushi”
Reviewed March 22, 2009

I have eaten sushi all over North America. As I haven't eaten it in Japan, I can't say its better, but Hiro & David do a fantastic job. The fish is extra fresh as they get it every other day.

“Expensive but delicious”
Reviewed March 21, 2008

This place has a very extensive menu, lots of rolls, sushi, tempura and other authentic Japanese dishes-in my experience all delicious. They also serve saki, or saki bombs (saki served with beer, I believe you're meant to drop the shot into the beer and then down it quickly) which is great fun if you're in a group. Service is good rather than great but certainly no cause for complaints.
This is definitely not the place to go for a cheap night out though, as an example the 'sushi for two' will set you back $46, although this will give you a generous selection for two people.
I would recommend this restaurant if you love Japanese cuisine and are willing to splash out, although there are certainly cheaper places to get a good meal.
