Sushi bar run by sons of owner is very friendly and the fish is fresh and lovely. Families come and are welcomed. Regulars are treated like family. The food is just about as good as fresh sushi can be.

Went for lunch with colleagues during the week. The server didn't understand English very well, so it was difficult to communicate. Good variety of sushi and rolls. Good flavors as well. The service was very slow. It's worth trying, perhaps they wer short a server?
