This restaurant is the best! Amazing Japanese food - arrive early because you cant book and it fills up quickly. We arrived around 7 and had to wait for 30 mins for a table which was fine because they have a little bar area which...More

Probably the best Japanese food outside of Vancouver you'll get. Always fresh. Hate that I can't book though, so we always end up arriving before they open to queue to get a seat. Worth the wait, though!

The servers were fun and lovely, the drinks were delicious, the sushi was delightful! I'm coming back, but maybe I'll wait until town becomes a little less busy! It's a hot spot.

The foods good, and you won't go home hungry. Prices aren't too bad, but it's not all you can eat. Can't book reso's so make sure your there at a good time to get a table. Fresh and made to order so can't complain.

We originaly wanted to go to a different place, but they were closed, so we ended up here. Glad we did. We got the sushi for two and loved most all of it. The the best we've had, but a great time in a small...More

They don't take reservations. Either get there for opening at 5:00 or second seating which runs around 6:30 which is what we usually do
