    Try the Sushi Combo, it was great. Just wish we had a better server.

    Make sure to try the Tootsie Roll and the Tataki Tuna roll. Probably the best rolls I've ever had.

    Beautifully designed place with excellent presentations. Food is great and prices are reasonable. Service was a problem one evening. Wait Staff had friends drinking at bar and ignored us.

    Love the M80 and the combo fried rice...ask for extra oranges and squeeze them over your rice, it's an exceptional taste!! They have good martinis as well...

    The best godzilla I've ever had. Also, the fried rice is amazing!

    Cutting corners with minced fish. Couldn't identify what was in my maki. Expensive and not worth price.

    Beautifully presented sushi, with G-d knows what in it. The fish was minced or ground, and all had the same orange hue. Much better sushi bars for the price a short drive away.

    I'm having my typical meal...M80 for starters with a glass of Cupcake Riesling, followed by my main course of combo sashimi...your girl goes hard with the raw fish!!
