Some of, if not the best sushi I have ever had. Small 6 counter, so very intimate. Usually caters to regulars but was very welcoming to even us foreigners. It definitely helps if you know some basic Japanese. Great selection of fish that is cut right in front of you. Would revisit in a heartbeat.


A small and cosy restaurant with great food!


Very good sushi and cool atmosphere, although dont speak japanese still can enjoy the food and atmosphere
