    Spectacular and reasonably priced for the quality. Get the panko-crusted ahi and the crab ramen with truffle. Share both so you can try more dishes.

    The sushi was worth every penny. The real winner though was the fried vanilla ice cream with the macadamia nut tempura batter.

    This place is ALWAYS busy but if you don't mind sitting up at the sushi bar no wait time, however if you are waiting for a regular table anywhere from 30min-60min. It's worth the wait though.

    Panko crusted Ahi is very good, although defeats the healthy aspect of eating sushi. Don't get the Yaki-Maki Sushi or anything with the word Dynamite in it, unless you want food covered in mayonnaise.
