We went to this restaurant 1 year ago and loved it. They had extended happy hour prices in the bar with half off all sushi rolls and appetizers, great hot saki and terrific service. We went back this year only to find the restaurant had changed hands. No more extended happy hour specials and the place was empty.

Our waitress was more interested in drinking cocktails with her friend behind the bar and openly eating a pizza hut pizza. The entire experience was a big disappointment. We had 4 different kinds of sushi rolls and they were okay. The miso soup and edamame were fair. Saki never arrived to the table hot because the waitress was too busy with her drinks and pizza. Bummer! We will not return.

The ambiance fooled me. I have tried this restaurant three times and I'm just not impressed with the food or the menu. Services is marginal

This place is good - but in Houston there are so many sushi restaurants - I feel that unless this is happy hour their prices are a tad bit high.

Very good food - but I think value wise there is better.

Holy b-Jesus this place was good! It is pricey, but damn. Some really fine Sushi/Japanese cuisine. This is right up there with Kubo on my list! And the dining room is really cool. Great place for a date.

We sat in the bar area and enjoyed fruit infused hot saki and amazing sushi and appetizers at 50% off the normal price. Check for their extended happy hour days and times and enjoy!
