Pocket S.Pocket Sun: Old school Japanese style sushi. Crispy seaweed, warm rice and fresh fish make perfect hand rolls. Set menus are nicely paced and bring satisfaction to the taste buds.

Adrian P.Adrian Phillips: Large scallops & salmon sushi are my favorites, with the blue crab hand roll coming in a close second. If you're hungry & it's a good daily special, then "The Nozawa" is usually the better deal.
