    Great late-night HH starting at 9:30 w/ a selection of apps, sushi, specialty rolls and drinks. Highly recommend the Hot & Spicy Girl Roll and the Jeremy Roll. Did I mention they also have a patio?

    Be patient at the door if there's a wait. Well worth the time once you order your sushi! Too many people ask for a ton of the spicy mayo/other sauces. Order with little sauce if you like fresh fish!

    Owner and wait staff are incredible. The sushi chefs are the best. Though I am not into the more exotic tastes, their ingredients are always fresh; their meals never dissapoint

    The Wakame Rock Shrimp Tempura is amazing. I'd also recommend the Minneapolis Mule (it has sushi ginger in it!) or the Ginger Pear Cocktail.

    Honestly, I didn't even know it was here, tucked away on Excel. Felt ill afterwards because I couldn't stop eating the heaping portion of good Pad Thai. #knowwhentostop
