As usual, the shrimp shumai was excellent as well as the array of fried skewers of eggplant and shiitake mushrooms. The sashimi is fresh and the portions are large. Order fresh, sweet pineapple as dessert - great way to end a delicious meal.

The set menu is what I usually go for which changes by the day. Not my first sushi choice. Diverse menu with many options.

Although the nice personnel was very nice and gentle ... Sushi and sashimi was mediocre. You can find better Japanese restaurants in the city
