Very cool place to eat sushi in Baltimore. Service was top-notch, vibe is cool, and sushi is fresh and very tasty. I have a new favorite! Sake to die for!

Fresh, visually appealing, great attentive service, awesome menu - japanese Whiskey and Saki. The "happy spoon" truly left you with a smile on your face! The ribs are amazing - wow. The sea urchin sashimi style was delicious and so was the seaweed salad (different but good). The cod (similar to Nobu in Miami) and the "steakidon" (ribeye) was also a favorite! The kcc farm chicken tasting 6 ways was interesting - prob least fav but good to try. MUST have the dessert - they have a top rated pastry Chef on staff - try the tasting - just yummy.

Will go back again and again!!

Had the tasting menu. Food was good, but nothing spectacular. The best part was the ramen noodle dish. The ramen had that perfect bite and they do make it in house. However, this was paired with the most basic nigiri sushi offerings. Tasting menus should highlight some of the best that the restaurant has to offer. They have not yet perfected their grilled items. Some pieces were unevenly cooked.

Service was ok, but had to wait about 40 min for the fist dish to be served.
