“I didn't think it was that bad!”
Reviewed 6 October 2009

After 2 negative reviews you might be swayed not to go, but I went there for lunch in November 2008 and loved it! Went during the post-lunch rush and had a leisurely sushi plate and kaiso-and-mixed-greens salad. Both were lovingly plated and the small restaurant had a nice, cool vibe (cool as in calm and refreshingly quiet: it was a hot day and I had been walking all afternoon!). There was also an outdoor patio on the boulevard, but that was in full sun and it seemed loud outside.

As a travel writer on assignment, I ended up seeking the owner (he turned out to be the "patron" nearby eating with his young son) and we had a nice chat. He spent a few years in Japan and a Japanese-like attention to detail shows in the food. Service-staff-wise, it was okay. Not great but not terrible either. All told, I definitely would go back if I found myself in TA again!

Expensive for what you get. Small and arranged poorly. Some dishes are very good. Some are very bad. Overall too avarage for it's price range.

“If you can at all, stay...”
Reviewed 17 July 2008

If you can at all, stay far far away from this place. It's expensive, the sushi is mediocre and the service was as bad as bad can be... rude and pompous. If you still decide to go, be warned: use your ginger slowly and wisely... after you're done with those 4 little slices they provide you, you'll have to pay to get more. Nough said.
