It was worth the wait to have freshly-made quality sushi. The dish "King of the Sea" comes with huge sushi rolls which is much bigger than their dragon rolls. Both dishes have wasabi made cute dragon heads.

The mid-size dining room was nicely arranged with semi-private spaces separated by cute paper or bamboo screens. The place was bright and clean with an extra counter for diners to sit and watch the chefs. We shared a small octopus starter which was tender and...More

We stopped in for lunch and had a very nice meal: well flavoured miso soup, nicely dressed salad and very tasty sushi and tempura. Some of the best we can remember having for quite a while. And the wasabi was the real deal!
