Good ocean trout sashimi. Like the volcano roll too. Super cool that this place is right across the street from the Fillmore. Foursquare - September 2017

Great food with interesting decor. I would highly recommend the takoyaki and onoki mushrooms. They have a button to call for the waiter which is nice. However that's really the only time they came to check up on us. Pretty pricey but the food quality is good. Ordered lots of dishes and only 1 or 2 were subpar. GooglePlace - September 2017

I'm impressed with how unimpressed I was with this place. Sushi was slightly better than all-you-can-eat, karaage was small and sad, and the rest of it was equally disappointing. It's no Yuzuki. Foursquare - July 2017
