    With a sashimi platter we got a variety of fish, which all were fresh & tasty. This is one of few places that I can get plum wine (umeshu), which I suggest if you like sweet wine.

    The sushi is reasonably priced for the quality and I like the option of black rice (for an extra charge) for my sushi. The service is excellent, and the staff really know their stuff.

    Oxtail Ramen: Mushrooms, crispy tofu, Napa cabbage, ginger, grilled tomato, parmesan, and slow-cooked, fallen-off-the-bone oxtail meat. A nice melody of diverse textures and big flavors.
