A little tuck away by the Mag Mile. This place had great music, tasty cocktail and the sushi was amazing. Service was on spot and the establishment clean and crisp. Well worth s visit.

Came for lunch and the nigiri toro, sake and hamachi were some of the freshest I've had in the states. Beautiful confections I almost didn't want to disturb, with subtle, absolutely clean finishes. Highly recommended. Sleek, compact, but intimate atmosphere. Great service.

I loved this place. Warm welcome with genuine charm. Restaurant was pretty full at lunch and the fish seemed very good quality (not fatty) Excellent Sashimi and great ura-maki flavors and ingredients . Possibly a hidden secret ? 50usd a head no wine. Recommended.

This restaurant was highly rated on another website. Coming in from the cold the restaurant was stifling hot. The service was fast but not friendly, only when we left. We ate dinner there and left hungry. The food was ok but overpriced. The tables were...More
