Small place, limited seating. Went with my 6 year old as he loves sushi as much as I do and we were not disappointed. They even have an all you can eat option.

The waiting area is very small and when we stepped in to pick up our order, there were 4 other people waiting. It's a popular place with people in the know. Now for the food.
