Go early so you don't have to wait in line. The line can be long and it grows quickly. We decided to let our server choose a variety of dishes that she felt the Chef was doing particularly well. It was a great decision and we had some of the best Sushi dishes we have ever had. In case you are wondering she did not just choose all the most expensive items on the menu. I think our experience was enhanced tremendously by our server. With each dish she placed before us she explained what it was and the best way to consume it. Tremendous experience!

We happened upon this little Japanese restaurant while walking around the Pearl District. We went there for lunch and had a bit of a wait before being seated at the sushi bar. It was worth the wait. The food was delectable and fresh. They had some very creative custom rolls too.

I've always loved this restaurant for casual get togethers and special occasions. After last night I don't know if I will return to this location. We were early and all was well for the first 20 minutes. Then the chaos began. The "music" was changed and cranked up beyond tolerance. I love Talking Heads-type music to energize me to work. It's however absolutely the worst choice for a nice dining experience with any hope of conversation.
It was as if it was there only to energize the MANY workers who were all buzzing around as if in a mania. There was a pair of employees, assumably for training, who must have filled our and other's water glasses over a dozen times in the hour we felt was longer than our welcome! We had so may visits from different staff to remove every single dish as SOON as it was empty, I couldn't count. It was awful. The message we got was - get outta here fast. There was no line of diners waiting for tables. I just don't get what employees and managers think is the purpose of this restaurant. So sad to feel uncomfortable, rushed and unwanted ☹️

Read the reviews, this place is really really good. We had the rolls, highway 65 and California sunshine, sashimi bowl was awesome, great variety. Even the vegetarian in our group found a great noodle dish. And they have a great environmental friendly model, so you are going to get some fish you would never get anywhere else. Got to go.
