Came here for a dinner and waiter forgot my order and when sushi came, they were tiny pieces and hardly any flavor. What a rip-off. This place has gone down hill since owner change couple of years ago.

Above-average sushi restaurant with lead chefs (one of whom is the co-owner) who know how to slice fish the way sushi needs to be done. They also serve Osaka-style sushi (pressed), which is not that common. Grill options are limited, but what they do offer...More

Tekamaki, tuna roll, was very fresh and tasty. Miso soup was interesting and flavorful. A little more stock than I'm used to, but I really liked it. Edamame was made fresh, but it could have had a bit more salt. Service was outstanding.
