This restaurant allows you to enjoy excellent custom-made and unique sushi creations. Optimal freshness and savor on all their dishes. Nice small site which should enable personalized service but it was a bit slow and reactive.

This is my favorite sushi spot in San Jose. The chain sushi/japanese restaurants are a lot more expensive and don't offer the same quality. The place is small but it has a cozy, personal feel to it. The service is always good. The bento box lunch special is the best value. Around 10-12 bucks will do and it even comes... More

And at that time the food came all togheter...... Except for that it's a great place. I like it, perhaps they forgot our order but next time i go... More

If you go for lunch, you really get a great deal. They kill you on drinks though. My bill is usually half drinks and I only get iced teas for my children and myself. the teriyaki chicken is super good and they give you nice size portions. One lunch meal is enough for myself and my two toddlers (2.5 and... More

We have eaten here on numerous occasions and each time it has been outstanding! The quality of sushi is always good and the prices aren't extremely high. Service is always good. 1 day per week they have special for 3 rolls and you only pay for two.
