    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
