We were immediately seated upon arrival. Our server was very attentive and service was efficient. We were given a free appetizer, which was nice. The sashimi portions were nice. The food was delicious.

We walked in with a group of 7 on a weeknight and even though it was quite full they still got us seated without a wait.
