I have hard time to find a good tako (octopus) salad or any appetizer that have raw sliced octopus. Kaita has it! The last one I had was in NYC. I also like their Daily Menu Special. Their Hamachi kama is good too.

When I think sushi I think sushi-ya and having a conversation with the individual preparing my order. Besides a chef not prepared to give me the time of day and mediocre fish... this place is a definite miss.
