I was able to beat the rush hour lunchtime by arriving before noon and it was well worth it. The sushi are delicious and beautifully presented. They are pricier than in other sushi places downtown, but the quality makes up for the price difference.

Ate here for dinner while staying at the hotel across the street. The sushi was good, and the Wakame fantastic. Definitely would return.

Read the great reviews so went in with high expectations. Food was only average but on the pricey side. ~$60 for 2.
