    tuna tartare w/ quail egg gunkan, scallop handroll, chicken karaage, and scallop miso butter. 👌🏽 skip the bombs, better things on the menu.

    Get the Oyako roll. A cute play on the traditional Japanese dish, it's salmon and salmon eggs and was one of the more interesting kinds of nontraditional sushi I've had in a while.

    Good place, nothing special sushi wise and it's a form of sushi fusion not sushi. They don't have the traditional list of sushi to choose from is that what you're hoping for & no "bar", only tables.

    The Spicy McBomb is amazing and so is the Momo salad. The atmosphere is definitely cool but the acoustics are God awful. Not a good place if you're looking for an intimate dinner.
