For a seasoned sushi otaku, this place is very good. It also turns out to be a great first experience for those new to eating sushi. It offers the full authentic experience.

Love the tempura and sushi nigiri. How is Japanese this good, so far from the ocean? I lived in Japan for 2 years and can honestly say this is among the best I have ever had, here, or Japan. Will keep on going back!

Best bet is to get there early. I tried to go back second night as a single to sit at sushi bar, madness. 50 Minute wait for sushi bar, 90 minutes for table. But worth the wait! Awesome
