I love their sushi pizza. It's always fresh and delicious. The service is good and it not usually too busy to be in and finished at lunch time.

Hands down, this place is by far the best sushi place in Halifax. The food is always super fresh and the staff, especially the chef, are some of the friendliest people ever.

This is a fantastic Japanese restaurant. As I understand it, the owner and his wife are Japanese and that is reflected in how good the food is. The ingredients he uses are incredibly fresh and locally sourced. Whenever I visit Halifax I make a point of visiting this restaurant. I have been to endless Japanese restaurants including ones in Japan... More

Very good sushi! Very experienced chef, fast and so good. Highly recommend. Smaller establishment but good food from sushi to teriyaki salmon.

Stopped in here based on the reviews and the fact that our hotel was a block away. Sushi was very good, although rolls were a bit smaller than I'm used to. Service was average but such a small place not hard to get someone's attention when needed. Would go again.

So fresh! It is absolutely the best sushi my wife and I have ever had. The atmosphere is basic, the service is friendly, the chef is obviously an expert in his field. We'll be back next trip.

The chef's philosophy is really cool. Service was quite slow. The food was good, but nothing remarkable. Average price for sushi in Halifax.

Absolutely delicious sushi - it's so fresh and perfectly presented. Shige is the nicest guy in the world and it's a very comfortable place to eat - they make you feel like a regular even if you are not

The decor leaves a lot to be desired, but it's very clean. The fish was good and fairly priced. The sushi pizza was very good. The roll we had was also good. Mostly it seems authentic. I would recommend it.

Visited with a friend on his recommendation. Beautifully presented dishes, excellent service, and most importantly: absolutely delicious. Tender cuts of salmon, tuna, mackerel... The unagi was a new flavour to me, and I'm glad to have tried it here first. I'm told the menu varies with availability, and everything is delightfully flavourful and thoughtfully made. Would recommend to anyone, from... More
