    Older diners need to bring flashlights as the place rather dark, making it hard to read the menu. Otherwise food was delicious

    It's promising for a drink and nibble, but stick with the sushi, because the fusion cooking rarely tastes as good as it looks. Read more

    Nice place and environment, but my first experience there was terrible. The food took forever, and the waiter forgot to order my drink. I got my drink 50 minutes into the visit.

    Good chicken katsu donburi where the rice gets a little char. Eel avocado hand roll is a great off the menu item. Trust me, you won't regret it!

    Their specialty rolls are especially tasty, and $15 lunch boxes let you taste a little bit of everything.

    I highly suggest the White Tiger Roll if you dont mind spending $21 on 8 HUGE pieces of sushi(probably the best specialty roll I've ever had).Also,try for the romantic outdoor area if weather permits.
