“Best Sushi in Town”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

This is my go to place for Sushi in Rochester. If people tell you otherwise then they just don't know Sushi. Very fresh and priced reasonably with a nice comfy atmosphere. Try the specials for something different, great Japanese and Korean dishes change daily. The staff is most often friendly and chatty and always open to give you advice on the food. Try the green tea ice cream for desert, it is awesome!

“So good!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

My first visit. Hostess,server,and sushi chefs all very friendly and personable. Chicken dumplings(fried)were very good. I had two different sushi rolls. Both were excellent. Very clean and comfortable atmosphere. Will definitely go there again!

“Try the Tempura!”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Tried the new sushi place on Alexander - next to Old Toad - last week. I had the Ika Tempura appetizer -- wow! Figured there was no way the meal could get better than that. It was crispy, tender, seasoned perfectly. Mouth watering delight.

Then shared a couple of wonderfully named sushi rolls -- Snow White and New York New York. Couldn't believe they were even topping the Tempura.

Then the green tea sundae.

Can't wait to go back!
