Had the opportunity to visit this place. Excellent service. People were very friendly. Had a english menu. Also had the opportunity to try the blowfish aka fugu.

Sushi was par. I wouldn't call it the best sushi in this area but it was good enough


A sushi bar where many locals from the neighbourhood convene. English menu available.

Large fresh slices of fish, shellfish, or pickled vegetables on just the right amount of rice are served at the perfect temperature. I recommend trying the different seared tuna belly varieties on your first visit; they vary by fattiness and are true indulgences. But you really cannot go wrong here with any choice you make! It's all very delicious.

Word of caution for those sensitive to smoke: smoking is permitted inside.


Nice place had english menu. Add pic of enlish menu. Food was good. I really liked the sushi. Beer ok 2 out of 5 it was a logger. They couldn't sell me blowfish. Price was good for the amount that I got
