    Recently ate here 2 days in a row. It was that good. Tuna tower is a must I crave it! Rolls are huge. We ordered too much but ate it all

    The food was awesome. The best summer rolls I've ever had.

    Vegas roll and the stuffed jalapeños are spicy pure goodness.

    You MUST have the Ahi Tuna Tower. It's the sole reason we go + the fresh salmon sashimi and seared tuna.

    I've had better sushi but the desserts are good

    My current pick is the Sashimi roll. It's loaded with raw fish and wrapped in crunchy, pickled carrot. Who needs rice?

    The Ahi Tuna Tower is spectacular!!! And freshest Nigiri Sushi in Houston!

    The spicy mango cocktail is great.

    Get the Lava Roll! Seriously. It's like every best food memory you have combined into one roll. (Helen is a fantastic server)

    Valet is not free unless you purchase a Loyalty Card and spend over $30. Sushi was delicious, but our server couldn't explain the type of cut on the Kobe beef, even after asking the kitchen. -_-

  • Lasantha R.

    Horrible!!!! A huge nasty fly landed on my food and when I complained all the waitress had to say was "I had no idea where it came from". The sushi is just OK.

    Lasantha Ranasinghe · July 4, 2013
  • Marlon C.

    The soft shell crab dish is the best dish I have ever had in life! A must try. And the waiter gives you the pen after you pay your tab.

    No good for those allergic to gluten!!

    Ahi Tower, Baked Salmon Roll, and Super Dragon Roll are amazing! The fish is so fresh! A bit pricey though.

    The Ahi Tower is delivered by the manager and mixed in front of you. The Blue Fish Trio was a mixture of fresh and salty from the roe. If they have a special, order it - freshest fish they have.

    Great sushi! Drinks are made with fresh fruit, their Sunday roll is great. Overall a great experience ..... Only thing is that one of the waiters tries too hard to be cool ..annoying!

    Juan Rios · April 5, 2011
  • Jason R.

    Great sushi. Some of the best in Houston. If you want a roll I suggest the rock manhattan or the rain forest

    Jason Ruth · March 31, 2011
  • Cody H.

    This is by far, hands down, the best sushi in Houston. Hand and foot above Sushi Raku, Ra, The Fish, and Zake. Their Ahi Tower is going to be the new hit in the sushi world. Ask for Eric, great waiter

    Cody Hunter · March 27, 2011
  • Vyacheslav F.

    A must try. Place is new, not very big, but very sophisticated menu and great food. Did I say sushi were out of this world. Rain forest roll? Omg
