Some really great sushi, and the rest of their menu is quite extensive for those who dont like sushi. They have a decent wine list as well which was a nice surprise.

We popped in for a quick bite to eat. The menu is large, and they have great sushi platter specials. Service was good and food arrived very fast. We will be back.
