I have been going since K opened. Before I lived in Japan. Nothing fancy. Just great sushi. Authentically Japanese. Friendly service. Remember that there is ample parking in the back. Prices are reasonable considering the downtown location.

We found this restaurant based on a local recommendation. Family owned and run. Excellent sushi and other entrees in a diverse menu all at reasonable prices. Best sushi we have had in a longtime.

Skip all the other sushi places and go here. Nothing fancy or fusion. Not big hype. This is just good fresh sushi. Taste is amazing. The owner/chef is right out front preparing the meals. I will go back for sure.
