This place has the best Omakase ever! You basically leave it up to the sushi chef to give you the best dining experience in a sushi restaurant. The chef will serve you items exclusive to the Omakase menu which may include limited quantity toro shipped in from Japan that morning or special uni from Haikado. Each piece is masterfully prepared and seasoned by the chef. The origin of the sushi and preparation is described and the chef's recommendation on how to eat the sushi usually accompanies each course. There is a great deal of detail and purpose in the order of which sushi to eat first. Expect uni, caviar, foiegras, beef shashimi, snow crab, hairy crab, fire fly squid and or swordfish and so many other items shipped directly from Japan the same day. This is the only restaurant I would willingly drive four hours roundtrip every weekend to go eat at. Make sure you reserve ahead of time to sit at the bar. And yes, there is fresh wasabi grated from the root and not a powder.

The fish here is superb and the dishes they create are like tasty little works of art. I am huge fan of Japanese cuisine and Kru gets it right for me every time! Omakase

This is our favorite sushi place in town. The fish is always amazingly fresh and the chefs can be as creative or as simple as you like while still blowing your mind. They also do an amazing job of modifying or creating new rolls for gluten-free diners. You will need reservations, especially on weekends, and the prices tend to be a bit higher than other sushi restaurants, but it is well worth it.
