We tried this place out and won't be going back. To begin, there was some weird stuff in our glasses of water that "come from the tap" but living in the area, my tap water does not look like that. Some of the sushi rolls were good however, some were falling apart. For them to be offering $250 private rooms I kind of expected better GooglePlace - December 2017

The staff is amazing. You can ask any number of questions to understand what you are ordering. They will help you out. The ambience is very cosy and warm. It can get loud with all the sake getting drink here. The food is very good. Try out the ramen, udon noodles. The Kou specials are unique. Loved the jalapeno poppers GooglePlace - December 2017

Sushi roll was falling apart, messy and just ok. Hot scallops were great. Weird smell by front door, but free sake with Yelp check in. GooglePlace - December 2017
