Fun little spot. The restaurant was nice. It had a fun vibe. The food was decent. I would probably not go back on my own, but wouldn't say no if someone invited me.

I took my 11 year old here on a girls trip. We are from TX and have our favorite sushi spots...but this one took the cake. It was pretty amazing. Fast and friendly service. Loved the Shumai appetizer.

We come to this place regularly, and it consistently has excellent sushi. This is a different location than the one on State Street, and the menu is completely different. This is a more traditional sushi place where as, the one on State Street is more...More
