“Good happy hour.”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

Good deals on happy hour. Sushi rolls are a great deal fro the price. Most of the waitstaff were professional but a few we're dressed as if the walked the street. I had not been here in about 6 years. The place is still overall a very nice experience.

“a delightful experience”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

The Restaurant is very upscale. It has an elegant and young crowd. The wait staff is attractive and well trained and the food is excellent. The whole fish was tasty and well presented. One tip..they don't serve coffee in this Japanese restaurant

“Good place if you want really small portions of food”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

This place was mediocre, that amount of food was too Small for the price. A little snooty and the waiter could have used some customer service training. I was really looking forward to my dinner here but it just Wasn't satisfying.

“Fun sushi joint in downtown Austin”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Yes, it can be boisterous, but consider where you are ... I mean, they have Sake Bomb parties :D

They have all night bar menu at 50% off Sunday and Monday. Great value, needless to say. Rolls were OK, as was the hot rock beef, the real standout was the sashimi/crudo plates, four pieces of raw fish dressed in some wonderful infusions and sauces. Just perfect, absolutely recommend, especially the Austin Style. Waitress was wonderful. Would definitely be a regular place for me if I lived in Austin.
