Stopped by during a business overnighted based on the recommendations I read. Easy to locate, public street parking, and close to other downtown attractions. The restaurant is clean and well decorated with a collection of Japanese items collected over the years. Somewhat small and a...More

Don't let the exterior or location keep you away. The food here is outstanding, service is friendly, and environment inside is wonderful. Everything is cooked fresh so it does not appear like a fast food joint. It is worth the wait. I had tempura shrimp...More

A little surprised that this restaurant has such good reviews. Fair to middling sushi at very expensive prices. Maybe Columbia's best sushi but not great in a broader context. $60 (inc tip) for a beer and a one-person sushi meal seems excessive for sushi that...More

I came here to celebrate my friend's birthday during an anime convention. When I got there, I was kinda worried since they weren't busy, and I'd figure during an anime convention, any Japanese restaurant within walking distance would be packed. The place is easy to...More
