“Fantastic, fresh sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

This place is great. The sushi is always fresh, and they have unique appetizers that will keep you on your toes. I had monkfish liver the last time I was there, it was great. Be sure to ask about the specials, they always have something unique, but they are handwritten on a tiny black board near the sushi bar. If you don't ask, you won't know and you'll be missing out of something tasty.

2 things to note:
1) prices are on the higher side, so don't expect go here and expect a small check
2) it's BYOB, they do not have a liquor license. There are plenty of places close by to purchase alcohol, just be aware of this before going if you'd like an alcoholic beverage with your meal.

“Great food & service despite a shady building entrance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2012

I would never have tried this place if coworkers hadn't taken me under their wing to show me what it had to offer. It's a second floor restaurant and the stairway up is decorating in a way that would make you lower your expectations. However, the sushi is great. My favorite starter is the spicy tuna tartare. This an even better option for lunch given the $9 specials that include two sushi rolls and a bowl of miso soup. The service is efficient and the place is always packed from 12:15 - 1:30 pm during the week.
