Restaurant did a great job with our group of 16. The sushi rolls were the best! Crab knuckles interesting, but not enough meat for $32. Share it as an app. Attentive service from Hannah.

The food is not expensive, but was well worth it. Our service was great. We got an appetizer, vegetable tempura and several rolls, as well as a dessert. Dessert is not to be missed. The only criticism is that they need more variety the vegetable...More
