"I've been here a few times and the quality of their dishes never ceases to amaze me. It has a great location in the heart of Buckhead allowing for many options once you finish your meal. The sushi is as good as any other sushi joints in the city. I brought a friend of mine new to Atlanta and we spent 2 and a half hours dinning on the patio. The atmosphere is just warm electric and contagiously attractive. I recommend this for a date. She won't be disappointed."
