“Good food, not much service”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

The pace is pretty spacious, but little parking. Street parking is best. The food is affordable and pretty good choices. The downtown and uptown sushi rolls are my favorite...pretty unique. Service is slow though.

“Perfectly adequate”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Not amazing but just fine. Fresh as can be. Nice waitstaff. Hole in the wall. Not sure I would go back but I do recommend it.

“Holy moly!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

I am a sushi lover and this place was terrific! The food was amazing and very affordable. Ignore the ambiance, which is easy, cause there isn't any. Focus on the food, which is even simpler cause it is mouth watering. The staff were friendly and efficient, even during VERY busy times. Loved it!

“Casual and good”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Had a nice udon noodle bowl. My husband had a tasty tempura bento meal. All cooked quite nicely. Our waitress was so-so. But her assistant was extremely excellent. We ended up tipping him more.

“Cheap and cheerful, but not all that great”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Cheap and cheerful hole-in-the-wall sushi. A little
sloppy with the rice (both flavour and slapping together), but
certainly a nice way to fill up on decent fish very cheaply and
quickly. Seemed extremely popular with locals, nothing resembling atmosphere.
