Four of us found this gem for dinner and we were not disappointed. The owner was super friendly and the food was excellent. Ordered garlic shrimp, steamed mandu, dragon roll, rainbow roll, dynamite roll, and sneaked across the street to 7/11 and bought Asahi Beer to wash it all down. Slipped the owner a bottle for his hospitality. The place is tucked away and doesn't look like much but don't let that discourage you. We will be going back!

We were really lucky to come across this place; very fresh, great-tasting Sushi with friendly service from the wise-cracking owner Cliff. Can thoroughly recommend the Spicy Ahi Maki & if you're not up for seafood, the Chicken Teriyaki Donburi is really good.

It's BYO, so bring a bottle of wine to dinner (we just grabbed some very reasonably priced Australian Shiraz from ABC store across the street) & feast it up and I'd be surprised if it costs you much more than $50 for a couple.

We'll be back again, for sure.

Stumbled upon this little treasure and were greeted by Cliff the owner, very friendly and helpful.
Only a small place but well worth the visit We dined on delicious Garlic prawns . Hopped across the road first to get some wine/beer at the ABC store.
