Best sushi and sashimi in the area, hands down. I always get the sushi and sashimi combination and salmon avocado roll, it’s fantastic.

These guys are the real deal. There are allot of Japanese restaurants that say they are Japanese but they are not Japanese trained. It really makes a difference in the way the food is prepared. Freshness is the key. The fish is always fresh and...More
