I dined at the restaurant after returning from Japan 4 months prior and felt that the food carried much authenticity. The Sushi superb and the atmosphere cozy due to the small establishment. Will be come a favorite. Enjoy.

We sat at the bar and was served the 12 course sushi course. Everything was perfect right down to the chef. He was both entertaining and intelligent. Definitely would come back and enjoy myself in the future.

I have eaten here for 10 years and the food seems to only get better. The fish is fresh, fresh, fresh and the variety is not something that you see in many sushi restaurants. The chef is a real professional and serves the fish in...More
