A tiny extremely popular restaurant. Everything is of highest quality from fish to elaborate dishes. The sushi doesn't disappoint. An outstanding value for the quality of the ingredients and preparation.

Best sushi hands down! The ballerina roll, spicy tuna, and crunchy rolls were excellent. The rice is flavorful and airy. We also tried the grilled octopus which was really good. Overall great experience, we'll definitely go back and recommend it!

Very nice place, not huge, staff is very Japanese which I consider a very good thing! Very professional, yet gracious. Its not inexpensive, but the sushi is a cut above everywhere else. The fish was incredible, great variety and beautiful presentation. Expensive but worth it.
