    Salmon Sashmi/Nigiri is the best in the bay. Try it with ponzu sauce instead of soy sauce.

    J-Town Roll is a new family favorite. Consistently fabulous sushi and Japanese food.

    I had the Chirashi which was an unartfully presented bowl of rather large pieces. I can't fault the quantity. But the quality and presentation were sorely lacking.

    Try the Peach Roll. They've also got the best Salmon (sake) and Yellowtail (hamachi) in Japantown.

    Want a tip? Don't go here unless Kaita is closed, you're too lazy to drive elsewhere, or you have never eaten here before to be disappointed.
