Just across the street from the hotel, this restaurant is easily reached on foot. It was a joy to have something besides burgers and steaks. The sushi here is delicious, beautifully presented, and well-priced.

We love it here. Everything is always good whether it's cooked; beef teriyaki, miso noodles, tempura veggies or raw rolls etc. Everyone we take here loves it
