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.

My party of 5 arrived at 6 PM without a reservation on a Wed. night. We were seated almost immediately but it started to fill up fast and folks were waiting to be seated by the time we left. Edamame was simple but good. The sashimi salad was outstanding! Nigiri was good though not amazing. You need to ask for water if you want it. Only beer and wine, no full bar. The staff was crisp and attentive. I would go back, no problem.

First things first. Book and reserve a table!!! I didn't and had to wait an hour, but it was worth it. Outstanding sushi, friendly staff, especially the sushi chef's who work tirelessly to bring elegant, tasty works of art together for your pleasure. I now have a new favourite sushi - sea eel, wonderful!

Had the ngiri platter, which came with 5 california rolls, miso, and salad. I was stuffed to the gills with this first-class japanese seafood. A great experience.

We arrived at this restaurant at 6pm and took one of the last tables, within half an hour there was a line of people waiting to be seated and after tasting their food I could see why.

I ordered the chicken teriyaki dish and it was fresh and delicious and the service was great. Would love to go back and try the sushi as it looked amazing.

If you are looking for delicious and fresh food with a cosy atmosphere, definitely eat here, but get in early because it gets very busy.
