I think the most impressive part about this place is the size of the fish on its sushi. It is about twice as big than the ones that you normally get in Japan. I had 6 pieces and I was full. The fish is pretty...More

Nigiri and sashimi are amazing, with large cuts of fish. Soup is also very good. Rolls are average so stick to nigiri. Only 6 seats and no reservations. Worth the wait. Having to listen to sports talk radio is annoying and all the hockey memorabilia...More
