My husband and I went there for the first time. If you're looking for more of a quiet atmosphere like most sushi restaurants, this is not it. The place has terrible acoustics and is very loud, even when the restaurant was only half full.
We started with a calamari app. The taste was fine with a very light breading; however, there were only 7 small pieces on a virtually empty plate. Smallest order of calamari I have ever seen. If they aren't going to add more calamari, then at least put some greens or cucumber salad on the plate so it doesn't look so empty.
We ordered sake and the waitress brought the small bottle but no tea cups. It took a while to flag down someone to get them. Don't know if our waitress was new or just bad but she was very slow and unresponsive. Even other waitstaff jumped in occasionally to pick up dirty plates or check on us.
My husband had a noodle bowl; small portion and took forever to arrive. I had a spicy tuna roll and another roll. Rolls tasted fine and ingredients seem to be fresh but nothing out of the ordinary. We also had the cucumber salad which was very good.
It certainly wasn't the best Japanese meal we have ever had and the noise level was very loud; not conducive to a quiet, relaxing dinner. Service was definitely lacking. It is near the University and it seems as though they didn't know what they wanted to be. Is it a sushi restaurant or a sports bar? They need to get a better handle on what they plan to be going forward. If they want to be a true sushi restaurant then they need to get some booths to help with the noise and upgrade the level of service.
