“Thumbs Up!”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

Read about this place on the web and, given the very positive opinions, decided to try it - take my husband out for his b'day. The restaurant has a minimalist, sleek decor done in whites and light wood. It sits 40, and is staffed with young, helpful, attentive personnel.

Armed with a bottle of sake, we came prepared to feast. For appetizers, we got the stuffed jalapeño tempura (fab!) and monk fish pate (an acquired taste). The main course consisted of the Doma roll (assorted sashimi, mango, avocado, spicy sprouts, tobiko wrapped with thinly sliced cucumber, yuzu sauce), Triple Spicy Double Tuna roll, Nigiri of sea eel, sweet shrimp, clam, Spanish mackerel, veggie roll, and (because we couldn't get enough) tofu pockets and Spicy Crunchy Tuna Handroll. It was delicious, fresh, promptly served with a smile and a mountain of ginger ( per my request). As a "cherry on top", we shared an order of strawberry mochi with chocolate dip - which you must try: it is unbelievable!!

Make the trip: you will enjoy the food and the cool ambience.Leave the little kids behind; this BYOB spot is great for an adventuresome Asian gastronomic meal, first date, or girlfrends' dinner.
