Summary: This is a good sushi bar. For best service, sit at the bar. The sushi chefs are generally really good guys and you'll end up liking them a lot. Review: I have been there several times and will go again. It'd be nice if...More

Myself and a friend, both chefs, had lunch here. We found the fish quality poor, and did not finish our meal. We exited. Hoping we would not be ill later. Enough said!

I’ve eaten here once for dinner, once for lunch and once for late lunch/early dinner over the past 2 years. I mainly order the sushi/sashimi plates, sometimes the roll specials, and share in the “cooked” plates. The food is generally good and appears fresh, though...More

I'll admit- the sushi is okay, but the service is absolutely HORRIBLE!!!!!! I have been there 3 times (I know, I know...fool me once- shame on you, fool me twice- shame on me), but I stupidly thought I'd give them the benefit of the doubt....More
