“If you every had good sushi, skip this place.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

Its a very small place and when we came it was only the four of us and three people at the counter.

Not only was the waitress a little on the confused side, but when she brought out what were clearly the wrong items, she blamed us for ordering them?? I asked to see her note pad and reviewed it with the chef to make sure she didn't get anything else wrong.

By the way she never apologized for blaming us, but we actually felt the need to apologize to her about the confusion since we were worried about our food being tampered with and did not want to take a chance. That's the vibe we were getting here.

Sushi was just OK, nothing special if you are used to sushi, but also not very bad. If you don't have sushi where you live, you can give this place a try. Otherwise, there are much better food options in and close to town.

“Small portion/very pricy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

It's the worse sushi place I've ever been. I've never seen sushi that overpriced. All the portions were really small. The tuna seemed to be canned tuna. The almost forced us to tip more than 15%. Stay away from that place !

The atmosphere is quaint and fun. Though the dining room is small, rarely do I ever have to wait. Truly enjoy eating here.

“Great Find, Don't Miss It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We were so pleased with our choice for our group of 8 (we called ahead, it is a small place, they'll take reservations for groups over 6). The sushi and all other choices were really first rate. The restaurant is at 2724 Main St, the eastern side of the downtown area, not 324 as some websites list it.
