Eddy outdid himself. We truly enjoyed the Tuna Tataki and the Coconut Panko Shrimp. The sashimi was fresh and tasty. We are absolutely thrilled that he changed his seating to bigger, padded, comfortable chairs and stools. A marvellous time. Remember, though, that he usually closes...More

We have eaten here maybe a dozen times. Always excellent food. Service seems slow but that is only because everything is made to order and with care.

Hallelujah! Eddy has added to the appeal of his restaurant by replacing the small wooden chairs with larger, high back chairs with padded seats. Very comfortable for an enjoyable meal. And enjoyable it was. Always first class, fresh and affordable.

This place deserves a 5, overall rating, but expectations of visitors may question my judgement. I come from Vancouver, Canada, a hot bed of stellar Asian food, so my bar is very high, usually. Let's be honest, we're quite a ways from the coast, so...More

Or is there such a thing (timing)? I visited this place a few days ago for lunch. They only have 4 tables and they were full but here were about 4 stools. I asked if I can sit on the stool since I am dining...More

We tried 5 different rolls, and all tasted fresh and delicious! Although we were seated immediately, we did have a pretty long wait to get our food. However, there was only 1 person (I believe the owner) doing everything - taking the order, preparing it,...More

New menu features some new offerings but the old standards are still excellent. Eddy has help in the kitchen for the evening hours so service is better than at lunch. It's definitely not 'fast food', but well worth the wait. Reasonably priced and exquisitely prepared....More

If their usual day closed is Tuesday, then I would think they'd be closed, but they don't consider the 26th a holiday here, and will have the Monday off for Christmas, so they'll likely be open.
