I accidentally went back to the place; that was a huge mistake. Their servers do not pay attention or do not know the job. The server does not know what was on their special menu. She asked me "salt ok?" as if the food would not have flavour, and they could add salt or sauce. The appetizer is already with special sauce, and there is a similar item on their regular menu. So, I asked if adding salt in addition to the sauce would work. Surprisingly, she answered yes. After the order, I asked her to leave their menus. She came to my table twice just to ask if she could take them away (and surprisingly, another server came and asked exactly the same question!). Contrarly, she was not available when I needed help. I had to ask other servers twice to have her stop at my table. Its end I was about to ask her two things; a box to go and desert. She just grabbed the plate before I finished speaking and started walking away. The menus are left on the table, of course! I had to tell her that I was about to order something. Surprisingly, her response was I could take time to check the menus again. Hello? For how long have I waited for her? I had more than enough time! So, I decided to pay and go without adding desert. Also, their clay pot was broken! Not only small cracks but also a handle on top was completely missing. I had hard time opening the cover without burning my fingers. Bad services and risks of injury... This is not the place to enjoy meals. ------------- Food was great but service was not. I added some items later; it took forever to find a server to order, and three servers came to me to ask what I had added. One item was completely forgotten, too. One server served next table "short cut" her way by hitting my chair every time she needed to approach the table. If she walked to the table from the other side, there was nobody, and only thing she needed was walk a couple of extra steps. Her behavior was not only pleasant but also scared me when she had hot plates. GooglePlace - July 2017

The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere of the restaurant was very chill and professional. I just wish I got more food for the price I paid. GooglePlace - July 2017

One of my new favorite places! They have a beautiful inside bar that is perfect for taking friends or for meeting new friends! They also have amazing happy hour deals on food and sushi rolls. GooglePlace - July 2017

I often find it difficult to find places that are open all day long that are of quality. This place is not only open from lunch through dinner but has incredible happy hour from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. . Enjoy the Japanese freshness it's quality and a good price. GooglePlace - June 2017
