In the heart of Bishop is this little gem! The fish is very fresh and well prepared. The menu is complete as is the sake list. And service was great.

Teriyaki entree was served with a goopy sweet (barbecue like sauce) smothered on it along with a bunch of salad (90%+ iceberg lettuce with a few slivers of carrot) piled up on the SAME plate! Really, that is not teriyaki based on my past experience....More
