I can't say enough positive things about this place. AMAZING sushi of all kinds, cool vibes, lots of beautiful people, but without being too pretentious. The ONLY negative, is that it is a loud place. But thats what happens when you get a small room...More

Terrific food. Nice variety. I even tried new items, all fresh and tasty. Small and a bit noisy. Sat so close to the next table that I thought we should talk to them.
