I eat a lot of sushi l. The quality and shelf life of some fish at this reatraurant was highly questionable. Sushi looked dry and not in the condition to be served for consumption. Sushi chef was making faces when i have expressed my concerns...More

This place is low-key and unpretentious. The sushi is better than average and uses high quality fish. Service quality varies; the staff is friendly but may be slow when slammed.

Been here before, and I am still impressed with the sushi here. Really tasty dragon roll, but the sushi platters are also something to strive for. Works well for small groups, and induces a nice authentic feeling of a neighborhood-sushi-joint. Will definitely return. Standard sushi/special...More

I went here for the first time recently. I had low expectations because sushi in this part of the Bay area is often not very good. I was pleasantly surprised, it was excellent. A bit on the pricey side if you ask me, most sushi...More

Small spot, but ace sushi chef & the BEST quality fish around - like butter, you don't even need teeth!!! The service away from the sushi bar is a bit spotty, and it gets crowded fast, but well worth any such distractions!

I've been here over 10 times at least (always for dinner), first when I was a Student at Stanford, due to its proximity, and then while coming over to the Bay Area on business. It's clearly a personal favorite. It's a small place and can...More

It is a small place, which can be quite crowded in the weekend, but it is worth it. Good quality sushi with an authentic touch, quick service and not extremely expensive. Perfect for small groups. Will definitely return

You know when you first move to a new town and all you want to know is where's the go-to sushi restaurant? THIS is that restaurant! The service is so friendly, polite, and attentive. The sushi is delicious, and most importantly, it's very reasonably priced....More

Great local sushi restaurant. We live nearby and often walk over as do some of our neighbors. The quality is good and the prices reasonable though not cheap. It is small with relatively few tables so go either early or late to snag one without...More
