The food was the best in town and the staff even better. Get there early because if you wait to long you will be eating breakfast

Absolutely fabulous sushi/sashimi. I had a fatty tuna and jalapeño roll that was incredible - a special of the day and server recommendation. Very nice interior and attentive service. A vegan in our party was equally happy with the food and recommendations of our server....More
