    Sushi & service were amazing. Sit at the bar and enjoy the atmosphere. Una KYU was off the chain. Also get the spicy tuna on crispy rice. Janice, the hostess, is awesome! Found my neighborhood place!

    Nigiri sushi here is very fresh and delicious. However, the Dynamite Roll is not your typical spicy shrimp tempura & tuna roll—it's a spicy tuna roll with a greasy shrimp sauce on top. Like nachos 😫.

    My favorite Japanese Restaurant. Amazing Sushi-big fish/little rice (perfectly seasoned sushi rice). Great lunch specials. Japanese food done right. Tastes like my Mom made it! Owners are lovely.

    Popular place! Very large pieces. Hit and miss - the albacore and scallop were awesome! The sweet shrimp and toro were a bit overwhelming. Quantity over quality perhaps....

    Black cod was great. Can also recommend the spicy tuna on crispy rice. Don't miss out on the albacore = YUMMY. (don't order Sakura-- the house special)

    The albacore tuna - wow! Also spicy tuna on fried rice. Black cod was lovely as well - melts in your mouth. Awesome sushi altogether.

    When a Japanese restaurant offers dim sum on their lunch menu, it's normally a sign of bad things to come but this place is not bad.

    When eating the nigiri sushi, beware! They put a heap of wasabi right in the middle and if you're not used to it, it can drive you into mild shock.
