    Spicy scallop roll = to die for. Harvest roll, plum & shiso roll, and vegetable tempura are pretty amazing as well. Come to think of it, I've never had anything here that wasn't really tasty.

    The Suki Yaki is delicious if you're not looking for a whole meal of sushi. Also, try the sweet potato roll with spicy mayo and the asparagus roll--best veggie sushi options anywhere!

    This is a great, more traditional sushi spot. All the authentic stuff is spot-on, but don't miss the Buckeye Roll (sweet potato tempura, cream cheese and eel.)

    My favorite sushi place, hands down. The prices are a little high, but I have no complaints. Can't wait to go back!

    Best sushi in town. Prices have gone up over the years but still the best fresh fish in town.

    If you are hungry try the boxes dinner or lunch. They sever a generous portions. Try tempura too.

    Dynamite roll with the fried calamari is hands down the best roll at the restaurant. Also you can't beat the boat!

    The Pixie roll is incredible. Between the salmon and mango, it tastes like a dessert roll.

    If the server looks at your sushi order and then worriedly asks if you'd like some more, order more.
