Went here for lunch around 1:30. It was quiet and we were the only ones there upon arrival. Waitress was very attentive and our glasses were never empty. The food was really good. I will definitely be going back.

A very nice little sushi joint, off the beaten path, in Bennett Valley. I went in for lunch, not too many people there, and yet, I felt vaguely ignored. The waiter (who I think was also the owner) could use a bit of customer service...More
