    Great food! Everything was good, from the edamame to the rolls. I especially liked the spicy tuna roll and the unagi avocado roll.

    Order lots of nigiri rather than Fuki Mori which is 8 nigiri they choose for you for $35. I only liked half of them. Sea urchin is good. Amaeba/sweet shrimp was alright but not too sweet/fresh

    If going for nigiri, ask what's fresh on the board. I've had some wonderful butterfish and kanpachi from the board in addition to the traditional nigiri selection.

    The decor is beautiful but the quality of food was not as good as I expected. If you like traditional Japanese decor, this will be your place - but don't expect high quality food.

    Palo Alto周辺で日本料理を薦めるとすれば、絶対にここ。ただし料金は少々高い。その代わり満足はできる。板前もほとんどが日本人だとのこと。
