    Good for dates or catching up with a friend. Large vegetarian menu. Creativity in food and drink. Fresh scallop from Hokkaido. Very trendy which explains the high rating. Sushi purists should avoid.

    It used to be delicious, not anymore. Bombs: Too much rice, little flavour, Very little fish. The rolls sucks.

    Get the Pork Betty! Always. Also they're pretty nice and don't require the full party be present when seating. Love it.

    Amazing sushi. Extremely fresh fish. The chef puts a really creative spin on presentation but the traditional Japanese flavors are all there. I recommend the yellowtail scallion sushi bomb 😗👌.

    Pork belly is great, sake selection is superb. Sushi: mediocre. Service: terrible. Returned a salty dish, no apology or replacement, just walked away. Staff often ignores you. Overall, never again..

    The sushi "bombs" are larger-than-roll-sized circular balls of rice topped with colorful, compact pieces of raw fish and a whole host of other ingredients, like roe, cabbage and raddish. Read more

    Bozu has boldly shouldered the task of being a sushi innovator, inventing sweet vinegared rice fashioned into buttons topped with fish, and a variety of crunchy, smeary, branchy things. Read more

    Great atmosphere and solid sushi. The bombs are the feature here and worth getting a couple varieties to try out as well as the pork betty. Nice sake list to complement your meal. Kanpai!

    A hip and chic Japanese tapas bar with a two-story patio. The fish is incredibly fresh and we love the low-key atmosphere. We go crazy for the Pork Betty! It literally melts in your mouth.

    When the hostess asks for your number, don't think it's because she's gonna call you when your table is ready. That being said, food was worth the (sorta confusing) wait.

    The Pork Betty should be ordered right off the bat. One of the most interesting pork belly dishes I've ever had. I didn't even have to chew some pieces. They just kinda melted in my mouth.

    Атмосферное место скорее.. хороший выбор саке, но сама еда не впечатлила совсем. Ни меня, ни мою подругу. Может мы взяли не самые вкусные блюда. Салат с королевским крабом - дорого, но не супер-вкусно
