"Always a great experience. A wide assortment of specialty rolls that are all so tasty. The sushi is always fresh and delicious. The salmon sashimi literally melts like butter in your mouth!
A great Open Table restaurant. The back room area is a little more intimate and has a really nice ambience. It is a little escape from the busy streets, and a warm spot in the winter.
Highly recommend it!"

"All good in this restaurant, the service, the food, etc, only the music was (we think) not right for this restaurant, loud and better for clubs and discos, not for a japanese/chinese restaurant with good ambient, mood decoration and quiet location. But really is a good place to visit and of course for eat good dishes of japanese food."

"I always end up just getting a sashimi platter because the fish is so fresh, and occasionally I'll mix in a specialty roll. I've never been disappointed with their food, and I've been to several locations. My friend only had vegetarian rolls, and even made up her own roll and they were very accommodating. Service was just ok, but seats near the window are always a plus. Still one of my go-to sushi places."
