The place doesn't look that impressive from the outside but inside it is clean and inviting. I went for lunch with friends and we had a really great experience. The lunch menu has five different set menues that all look good. I had the first sushi menu, a plate full of delicious nigiri. I will definitely come back.

This is traditional sushi at its best. Best is to order omakase - chef's choice. The sushi chef will ask you if you have any restrictions - or favorites - and take it from there.

The son of the "famous" father succeeded the restaurant several years ago. The father persistently stuck to the traditional style even the fusion sushi is vogue. The son kept the same style for his sushi but I feel he is much soft for everybody. Now we can have the best traditional style sushi in OC in much relaxed atmosphere!!

It is my habit to eat sushi at most the city I visited, my friend recommended this sushi place to me and made a reservation(reservation only) for us. The restaurant is not big and looks simple. However the food is FANTASTIC!!! Although it is expensive, but it definitely worth it.
