Sushi bar run by sons of owner is very friendly and the fish is fresh and lovely.
Families come and are welcomed. Regulars are treated like family. The food is just about as good as fresh sushi can be.

This is a family owned and run restaurant and everything shows it. The chefs are fantastic and the sushi is the best. My grandson (age 7) gobbled down 16 Salmon sushi at one sitting. Just let them give you what is best. But Dynamite is my favorite.

Our daughter found this gem while she was a graduate student at Caltech, and it immediately became our favorite restaurant in Pasadena. Great Japanese food, friendly people, and reasonable prices. We have eaten at a a lot of Japanese restaurants between San Francisco and San Diego, and this is the best.
