Very Awesome. Sushi choices for everyone. Excellent rice, veggies and meat choices. Great appetizer choices. Service was alittle lacking due to short staffing, but still good. Will definately return on our next visit to the area. Recommend for anyone in the Cape area.

We eat lunch here with some regularity, the food is very good the service though is spotty at best. They don't seem to be under staffed but the service is usually poor. They are the best place in town for sushi at a reasonable price....More
