We love the sushi at this restaurant. On Friday nights we request a table on the patio so we could watch the live music and hula on the platform just outside the restaurant

After reading such TripAdvisor ambivalence about this restaurant we were unsure. But we walked from the Sheraton (TripAdvisor was way wrong so we walked 1.6 mi not .9) and took our chances. So we delighted in the daily special of spicy tuna and avocado roll,...More

5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., but get there a little early, it fills up quickly. There are only about 4 tables and a bar inside and 4 to 5 tables outside.
