The place is great traditional Japanese sushi with Japanese chefs. Nothing fancy but in my opinion sushi is best in Jersey, at least best I eat.

Their sushi is always fresh. Other Japanese dishes are good, too. Limited seating area, so be there early. Lunch menu has variety, too. Parking can be a little problem even they have some parking spaces. Staffs were friendly and good for lunch and dinner.

Pasta is pretty good here. Their service is great if you dine in house and the staff is super nice. We also did catering and the food was on point. Definitely recommend this spot if you need a Italian crave fixin!

Small, intimate restaurant. When we went, most of the tables were already reserved so we had to sit in a 'left-over' table. Sushi is very good, albeit a little pricey. One of the few Japanese restaurants that is owned and operated by a Japanese owner.

Delicious authentic Japanese sushi and food. Sushi counter for great nigiriis by Chef Nagai. Small space so better to make a reservation. Cozy with wonderful service. Very recommended!
