I'll keep this short...

The sushi/sashimi/tuna collar was way overpriced. I've had way fresher in less than stellar Japanese locations. Boom! Headshot!

Really enjoyed their creative happy hour specials - sushi tacos, etc. Loved the portable blackboard presentation of the specials. The chefs were very cool. A solid recommendation - not the greatest sushi restaurant i have experienced, but solid and proximate.

what a wonderful find! This is a hidden treasure. The rolls were very creative in taste and presentation. The service was excellent. We were celebrating birthdays and the waitress very kindly made this wonderful crepe filled with fruit and ice cream. It was so thoughtful and made my kids birthdays extra special. I would highly recommend seeking this restaurant out. we almost did not go in as it is a very unassuming store front and it seemed like not many cars out front but as the evening went on, more and more people from the neighborhood came in.
