I am a pretty easy going person.... And I have better service at whataburger.
The food is great, don't get me wrong. However, we can never go back here for the lack of service....
The staff was drinking, texting, talking, hanging out. Not working, therefore we waited for food, drinks, tab, etc... Absolutely unbelievable.

This little, hard to see, hard to park sushi restaurant is well worth the effort. Our son is a regular and suggested we have lunch there while visiting in Houston. We were lucky to get a parking space. Be careful as some are restricted to other business's in the little shopping center. It is not that the sushi is so amazing, it is very very good, but it's the price. I know Houstons near the Gulf but not much salmon swimming there. Seemed like the salmon sushi was just caught it was that fresh and bright. The tuna was great as was the yellow tail with green onion. Loved everything about it. Great hole in the wall atmosphere. My wife won't eat sushi but had the chicken fried rice which she loved. I tasted it and it was very good. Lots of fresh veggies with the chicken. Could not believe the bill when it came. Had to make sure the waiter didn't make a mistake in my favor. In LA, Chicago, Phoenix et. al. the price would be more than doubled. What a bargain.
If in the Galleria area or River Oaks it is close by. Do not think you will be disappointed.

This has become my new favorite sushi place. They have lunch specials every day. Good price for sushi. Always fresh (peppercorn tuna sushi is awesome). Great service. It's a small place and parking is limited, although you can park in the lot next door. They go on a wait M-F closer to noon, so go early or later for lunch.

This sushi restaurant is great! It's a small restaurant and gets pretty loud during Happy Hour (when there is a great deal on sushi Buy One Get One Free). We went there on a weekend and were able to try and lunch specials (which includes complete meals like bento boxes with soup, small side salads, rice, etc) and the Happy Hour sushi. You aren't allowed to get both a lunch special and discounted sushi though. Great price and good food! Would definitely recommend.
