Comments: Excellent sushi restaurant owned by a young chef. Great atmosphere and superb sushi is provided. Egg roll is just awesome.


Great Experience.

The chef was very meticulous about every little detail. This was observed in the preparation of the food and how orderly everything was positioned prior to serving.

The course flowed very well and the service was top notch as well. Even the bathroom is worth a mention to visit.


Large size, assertive sushi from a friendly young taisho.
