Nothing special, expensive for mid quality cuts of fish. Do not listen to there claim we have fresh seafood flown in weekly. Having eaten at Nobu, Sushi Samba and many others this place is not even close. Very mid range service, not upscale by any...More

Not really a Japanese restaurant- not Chinese or Korean, either, but a real fusion I'd call American-Asian. The food is tasty but fairly expensive. The service is wonderful, ambiance dark but the techno music is entirely too loud.

Depends on what part of campus, but the 20, 10, and 7, among others, all transfer to the 3 at Guadalupe/8th. The 3 will drop you off at Lamar/Treadwell, which is basically at the front door.
Do you serve vegan sushi and tempura?
