I agree with the reviewers who give this place thumbs down. As John writes, it needs to be renovated. The windows and the carpet are filthy.. The front service was good but that's because we tested them when they gave our table away and they had to scramble to find us another. Our food came out in dribbles and the excuse was "the kitchen is backed up". That was a funny because there were only two other tables left in the restaraunt at that point. Don't do it. If you love sushi there are many other choices in this area.

Set high on a hill near the best Western hotel, is a very quiet understated Japanese restaurant. Not a lot of people there but the food was wonderful and the place was so calm. We needed that after a very busy day. We had a new waitress who did not get everything right but she was trying and very nice. We would definitely go again

Yes the ocean view would be good if you could see through the filthy windows! I tried not to notice the badly soiled carpet as I ordered a glass of wine. When my wine arrived it was in a glass that was as dirty as the windows! O.K. I love sushi so I wanted to give them another chance. They were closed on Monday so Tuesday should have fresh fish, right? I love eel , so I ordered four rolls with eel. Sorry Sir, "We are out of eel" How can a sushi bar be out of eel??? That's it! Good bye!!! Won't be back.

We had read an article in the local Coastal News newspaper that made it sound promising. It wasn't.
The special 'Tomiko'crispy chicken appetizer was soggy. My fried crab rice had morals of crab. My wife's Drunken Black Cod had an after taste. The windows were dirty. But the young wait staff was nice

Have eaten here twice and both times not very impressed. Service wasn't that great. Food was over rated and over priced.
