I had a great meal with my wife at Kushi on a quiet Sunday evening. Service was excellent and the food well presented and delicious. This is an excellent spot with nice ambience, privacy and subdued lighting giving a welcome feeling.

I went here for dinner after a conference. The food was delicious and the service was fine but for me it was a little expensive for what it was.
