This is a fantastic local restaurant for lunch or dinner. All their dishes are excellent. The sushi is really good and as creative as you can be. The head waitress changes her hair color almost weekly, very fun lady!

We came here while in town for a training, a large group of 10. We set a budget and told the manager to bring us a variety. After asking about allergies and preferences, the manager, Min, rose to the challenge, bringing out several courses of appetizers and huge platters of sushi, sashimi, and rolls, along with explanations at the presentation...

The standard appetizers were fine, as expected. The rolls were quite good and the selection of special rolls was impressive. Service was friendly and efficient. Not too much else to say that is unique or distinguishing form countless other Japanese eateries in NY or NJ. Chances are good that you'll be satisfied here.

Pretty much as good as it gets outside n.y.c. superstar restaraunts. Ate with family for graduation and devoured everything. Rolls too many to mention, grey appetizers.very busy place with NY vibe. Drinks just so so. Service excellent.not chef though, but good sushi never is. A definite must. Foodie 141

Yes, the dollar signs are intentional. This place has great sushi, make no mistake. But it is pricey! I mean NYC pricey. Service is slow and sloppy at times. Bar is tiny and doesn't lend itself to hanging around at. Sushi bar is larger but few of the chefs speak good English so don't expect much conversation with them.

One of the nicest sushi restaurants in Bergen County--all rolls are delicious especially the specialty ones. Upscale atmosphere and full bar. We go here primarily for special occasions due to the cost but sushi is never inexpensive. Always a top quality experience!

After visiting for the first time it was clear that we would return. Very fresh seafood and fairly generous portions. Parking can be an issue but the food is worth this minor hassle.

Went here after a business meeting for a quick bite to eat. Had the lunch special, Philly roll (requested not smoked Salmon), eel Avocado. Also tried my friend's Crab cake roll and Butterfly roll. All were top notch sushi. The music was a little weird, but I can say that I will be back when I am in the area.
