The best sushi ever. The fish is very fresh and tasty. Other cooked foods like unaju and chicken cutlet curry is amazing. The appetizers like edamame and hamachikama is also delicious. The service is quick and the dishes were clean.

Never had better sushi than this restaurant. Very small and authentic Japanese cuisine. Freshest fish and really good miso soup and appetizers. Love this place!
