Have been coming here several times a year and never dissapointed. Not just another sushi and tempura joint but a place for the connaisseur. Fine variety of freshly made beautifully presented japanese dishes. Nice location across the street from the lake.

Amazing food and service. The staff explained every dish and were very helpful when we chose our meal. The food seemed very authentic, but I'm not an expert in Japanese food. Great location next to lake.
