Get the voodoo chips. Trust me. Once you do, you'll go back all the time. Note that the half order is huge. The sushi here is the finest quality in the Tampa Bay Area, and the people are amazing. We live nearby and go almost...More

The Sushi app's are very good with plenty of fish to go with the rice. The Chirachi dinner is excellent and a good value considering the amount of fresh fish.

The wait staff is friendly with two bartenders. The Monday night bar tender owns a burlesque troupe which has a huge gay lesbian following. Forget about getting any personal attention at the bar when gay patrons are present. The other bartender can't speak without mentioning...More
