My girlfriend and i visited this restaurant for the first time because we are both obsessed with japanese food and sushi and needed to have lunch somewhere close to union square where we were shopping. The first time we went we were glad to see that miso soup and a nice little salad come with every meal and they do good lunch deals. The califonia roll was better than the one in Japan Town, was fresh, soft, and melt in your mouth! We returned for lunch therr a few days later, and, although mu girlfriend was still wowed by the sushi, i wasnt impressed with the tempura (veg and prawn) donbori- it was alright, but just a bit plain. All in all though, good value for money and fresh and good food.
