This place is traditional in ever sense of the word.... Don't expect rolls on the menu, or soy sauce on your table. They grate fresh wasabi to order, and it will blow you away. Luckily I went with a friend who is Japanese to show...More

This is the best sushi ever! The appetizers are good (edamame, radish salad) however, go straight to the nigiri. Tip: no need to ask for soy sauce or wasabi, as it is not served. Why? You don't need it! The fish on rice speaks for...More

Some of the best Sushi I've had anywhere. Restaurant is small and tables are at a premium. I sat at the counter and service was great. Menu is large and it's a bit difficult to narrow down what you want to order. My suggestion is...More
