They had this lobster special where they served part of it as a sashimi and the other part as a miso lobster soup. It was very tasty and reasonably priced. GooglePlace - June 2017

Awesome place to go to eat. My coworker and I were driving to another restaurant she was interested in, but when I saw this Japanese Sushi place we had to pop in. It's a nice little restaurant, good place to bring a date. The waitresses who know patrons on returning visits will thank them out loud coming in, which is great for guys because it lets the girl know that you have experience with this restaurant. I was impressed with the eel over rice dish that I always order on my first visit to any Japanese restaurant to see the quality. You get lots of meat for your meal at a mid to high average price and it was so good. The Sake was huge and a great deal for $8. I was impressed with the chef who came to our table and explained what was included in the dish with various seafood she ordered. The waitress was attentive, the options were very good at a reasonable price of this caliber, and the atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. I would definitely go back to this restaurant again. I usually tip about 50%+ in cash, if the restaurant is satisfying. I left a $20 bill for tip and paid the meal on credit. My coworker embarrassingly origami'd that bill into a heart and gave it personally to the waitress. Like OMG, I wasn't even interested in the waitress. Oh well, I'll wait awhile before going back there. But I would come back here in a heartbeat. GooglePlace - May 2017

Fun little joint for some fresh fish. Food - Great place to get sushi and sashimi. Really fresh and creamy sashimi. - Fried stuff (tempura and soft shell crab) could be done a little bit better, they were a bit soggy at points unfortunately. Service Staff were friendly and non-invasive. Atmosphere Down to earth place that makes you feel at ease. Value Overall it's worth the trip and money you spend on the great fish. Skip the fried stuff. GooglePlace - May 2017

Wait is very long without reservation. They're usually crowded. The food is decent, but very over priced for what they offer, especially compared to other places in the city. Limited street parking. Service was incredibly slow. Doesn't leave me wanting to go back. But - highly recommend for take out or delivery. GooglePlace - April 2017
