The owner works very hard & was very friendly! He spoke spoke virtually no English which was challenging since we speak very little Spanish but I consider that our issue, not his. The sushi selection wasn't that great as they only had salmon, tuna & Marlin that day, but it was decent for where we were. The tea was easily the best green tea we've ever had! With a few little tweaks this place could be pretty nice!

We had dinner here one night when we wanted something light to eat. Had the Miso soup, which was very tasty, as well as some sushi and sashimi. It was all made right there. The fresh drinks (jamaica tea, lemonade with mint) were very good.
Service was good.
The only down part was that the floor was being mopped with some kind of cleaner that was VERY strong and caustic smelling, almost to the point you couldn't stand it even though the door was open.

We were the only ones in the restaurant this night, so the fact that only one guy was working there, taking orders and making the food - worked out okay, but I can imagine it can be a problem with more people.
The sushi was good. Not amazing but quite okay.
A little on the pricy side.

We enjoyed our lunch, a bit pricey. needs a happy hour with sushi pricing to get more business. Very polite. Happy hour would really help and keep it simple. Tidy pleasant place needs some boost of energy:)

Expensive place with a well read menu but unfortunately the food does not come up to standard. The temaki handrolls poorly put together, gyozas taste horrible and ramen soup just a joke full of fried pork cauliflower ,carrots and broccoli and overdose of sesame-true Japanese chefs would be committing hari kari if served this stuff!!
