Had a family dinner as we do every year over christmas holidays, and always good. But tonight really hit the mark. In the past, because the place is usually busy, service can be slow and orders slightly out of order...but the food was always great....More

The food was excellent. Sushi was very fresh. OK pricing. Service was outstanding. It is not a big establishment, so it can fill up quickly at dinner time. Recommend reservations.

This place was packed, but our hard working server never faltered. The food was great, and we were delighted to try bluefin tuna (special). Yes it was expensive but we knew that when we went there. For a special dinner I would recommend it.

Stopped here with friends because I had read about it in a travel magazine. The restaurant is located a little ways out of Truckee, not on the main drag. Decor is rustic Japanese. Service was good, not rushed. At first I was disappointed that there...More
