Reviewed 22 February 2014

The sushi was wonderful and they serve some special roles with a New Orleans flare. I loved the poboy sushi and would recommend you try it.

“Off street parking”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

In an area where parking is an issue, is was nice to find off street parking. This is a specialty sushi restaurant and I am not a Hugh fan of sushi, therefore I was not impressed. But based on others in the group the selections and flavor of several different sushi rolls were very good. Even though I am not much on sushi, I plan on returning with the same group since they enjoyed it so much.

“Sushi first timer!”
Reviewed 28 January 2014 via mobile

Surprised my friend by adding this place to our plans. We'd always talked about getting sushi together but something always got in the way. So this seemed perfect.

The ONLY experience I had previously had with sushi was about 13yrs ago. We got some from a grocery store in VA Beach and ate it on top of our van watching the sunset and listening to bands play on the boardwalk.

My friend picked out the rolls so I can't exactly say what they were.

Great selection, romantic setting, great sushi, great prices.

Definitely can't wait to have it again!

“Possibly the best sushi in NOLA”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

Just an awesome sushi spot. First class ambiance. Some of the freshest sushi in the city.

The Rocky III roll is a must try. The Spice Girl roll rocks. The Salmon Naruto roll is light & very satisfying.

Definitely worth trying out if you are a sushi fan.

A+.

“Great ambiance and happy hour”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

They have a really good happy hour menu 7 days a week with a good assortments of drinks rolls and appetizers. The decor and the ambience of this place is really good as well. Only reason this place isn't getting 5 stars is because the service was really slow even when the place wasn't busy right before the dinner rush hour.
