“decent sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Sushi was fairly tasty --not the best we've ever had but still seemed fresh and tasted good. Service was only okay. Would try it again.

“Fun and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Another return after a long time away. Worth it.
Got some beef (no sushi!) and enjoyed watching it cooked right there on the grill. Talented cook. Really good mixture of veggies. Service with a flair.
A fun time and good eats. I'll be back.

“Excellent sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Some of the best sushi I've ever had. The fish was very fresh, with each one tasting as it should. There are also some very creative and tasty rolls. Defiantly in the top 5 sushi dinners I've ever had. And it didn't break the bank.

“A little cramped but TOTALLY worth it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

The food here was delicious and the service was friendly and accommodating. My hubby and I went here while on our honeymoon. I checked out all the nice restaurants on the island when I was booking the trip. Despite the draw of the pier, this restaurant seemed so inviting, we had to give it a shot. The sushi was EXCELLENT!

This is definitely a place the typifies why you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. It's not much to look at from the outside, but the atmosphere inside is very relaxing. It was a little noisy when we were there because there were a couple of parties happening, but we're also both very sensitive to rising volume levels.

“BEST sushi around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

I probably eat here more than i'd like to admit, but it's so darn good. the atmosphere is fun and the food is worth every penny. i like to pick up my order to go when we just want to stay home and it still taste like it was cooked two seconds ago in front of you. Lisa is the best and always so sweet!
