Love this place. Small, crowded and loud ambiance. Chilean Sea Bass is my favorite along with the shrimp and garlic salad. Never disappointed.

This restaurant has a terrible menu, with no vegetarian sushi, or noodle dishes. The seating is very cramped with not a lot of room to move around in.

I've been to this place many times, it is usually crowded but they manage to serve you quickly. The food is very good and the seafood is fresh. Highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

From outside, this place looks dim and unwelcoming, But inside, it's bright, lively, and friendly. The sushi is fantastic, as was everything else that we tried. We plan to eat here often.

We came for the sushi, which didn't disappoint, but we'll be back for the tempura. The batter was perfect and the shrimp and vegetables were perfectly fried! Very very good. We got a lot of fish and other stuff and got just a small serving...More

Best quality sushi around here, even if a bit pricey. They are BYOB--so if you like beer w/ your sushi, bring your own. Friendly service, seating is a bit tight (not the place for a private conversation). Don't let the wait scare you, the service...More
