“Unexpected pleasure”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I have had the chance to eat sushi all over the world - from Scotland (don't do it) to Japan. Frankly, I wasn't expecting much but I was wrong! The sashimi was absolutely fresh and the uni was marvelous - two things that are easy to ruin if your fish isn't pristine. The service was excellent. If we are in the area again, I will definitely be back.

Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is absolutely the best Japanese restaurant in all of Western North Carolina. I have dined there many times, and never been disappointed.
