Very tasty curry dish. Everyone at our table liked their meal. Wait staff was attentive, but not hovering. Nice meal before Hamilton.

Stopped here before going to see a Dave Matthews show at Northerly Island and glad we did. Got to people watch on Michigan and eat some good sushi. Make sure you try the rolls with the black rice, and the Udon was spot on.

I can just remember the name of the firecracker rolls which were great but also the two other rolls were outstanding. USD 45 isn't cheap for 3 rolls but the location is great and the sushi is as well.

Nice veggie noodle soup (needed a little soy sauce). Close to the park but no wait even on a busy Memorial Day weekend. Tofu steak sounded intriguing. Next time!

I wanted sushi and asked someone where to get it. This place was close by so they recommended it. After eating I was happy that I went. The sushi was great, they also had a large selection. Also had the miso soup, which was delicious.

The staff want you in and out though ... you have barely taken your coat off and they are ready to take your order! Don't modify anything they get confused. Classify as cheap and cheerful for a quick bite!
