Go with one of the set dinners; those are the best value for money. You can taste most of their specials that way too.

Had a very delicious dinner here. Very nice twist to sashimi with the Yellow Tail w/ Jalapéno. Enjoyed the Black Cod With Miso & Corn Tempura very much. Will certainly come back to try the rest of the foods.

This place is a gem in South Bay Area: best sushi I could find here (I've had better ones in LA, Hong Kong, [and of course] Japan). Price is surprisingly good too if you order carefully.

Midweek dinner was uninspiring and mediocre. Specialty handroll I had was okay...not particularly well constructed from a taste or texture perspective. The shrimp and vegetable tempura was 4 (not) "jumbo" shrimp that were on the dry side, tasteless veggies and lukewarm rice.
