Thank you Shinpei who accommodated and recommended everything that I should try. Please ask the chef at the sushi bar for special items not on the menu. All that I ate that evening was like fresh from the market. James Hamamori was there... funny guy!...More

Funky eclectic vibe and interior, but a good choice. Sushi chefs attentive and skilled. Happy hour sushi offerings are good size portion, everything fresh and true to form. Disregard that the locale is in the mall, this is top notch.
