    It is not a very authentic sushi bar, but you better not miss the HH all day on Mondays and Tuesdays. $3.50 draft beer s and affordable rolls are not bad for friend gatherings.

    Happy hour is pretty limited but the atmosphere make it worth it. If your sitting outside, make sure they put you next to a heater

    WE WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE IN THERE! Food took 20 mins! Waiter was dumb as fuck! Put down all the totals of what we ordered on the back of receipt with card number and he charged it all wrong. NVR AGAIN
