We shared the chef special. We limited some choices because of food allergies but enjoyed the surprise. A wonderful array of very fresh fish in a boat tickled our fantisies and filled out bellies.

We had the spicy tuna, steamed dumplings , maple brussel sprouts, avocado roll and fries. Everything we ordered was perfect. The waitress was delightful and all the staff were attentive and helpful! They had a great menu to choose from.

We've been to this restaurant three times. They have a knack for hiring winsome staff who have made our meals even more delightful than just the food. But the food.

The meal was good, we were a large group so the service was a challenge. My fish dish was great, but the group comments on the sushi were so so. Drinks were very good with a very good wine and beer selection.

Drinkers beware! Bear in mind that only beer and wine are available here . The revised menu has many choices for the non seafood eater. A nice selection of wine exists , and the staff is quite knowledgible .

Ok coming from Philly where we're used to sushi for a fourth of the price, it was a bit of a shock. But once you try it, you'll understand. Tuna squared roll was amazing. Pork platter also really good. Service was fast. Food came out quick. People are friendly. Nice for a hot date
