“Pricey but best sushi place I've tried.”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

I love sushi and this is the best sushi place for me. It is a bit pricey but you'll sure get what you pay for. Way better compared with the "all you can eat" places I've been. If you love sushi, this is the place to be.

“Salmon-skin sushi”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

It was a few years since I was here, but the sushi-master made my order in front of me. He then made a salmon-skin sushi for me to try and it was AMAZING! I should go back there, it was fantastic!

“Expensive but Delicious”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

Great sushi and bento box's but very expensive. My friend and I both ordered a bento box dinner which comes with sushi and two nonalcoholic drinks and our bill came to just over $50.00. The food was good but you can get the same quality and tasting food for much less elsewhere. The service was slow.

“Decent Venue and Interesting menu but Slow service”
Reviewed 9 April 2011

The service is very slow at this location - particularly during busy times.

The menu, however, has a variety of options that are different from other places in town and is very lengthy. The prices are a bit high but the atmosphere is very enjoyable here - the private booths are large and the open dining area has a warm envisaging vibe.

I think this place is worth trying but its not usually my first choice.

“Very good Japanese restaurant.”
Reviewed 22 December 2009

Better than Ye's, maybe not in terms of pricing. Went with parents and boyfriend, got the Titanic - a good variety of sushi and sashimi. Service was excellent.
