Yummo, great dishes and Sushi. Chefs and wait staff obviously enjoy the service and food they provide. You can't miss-when visiting the DM. Often less crowded than downtown Truckee.

We love it here. Everything is always good whether it's cooked; beef teriyaki, miso noodles, tempura veggies or raw rolls etc. Everyone we take here loves it

Incredibly perfect sushi. A little pricey but way worth it when you want the awesome. Make reservations except during midweek off season.
