Location and contact


All rolls are available for Lunch and Dinner and all are made with sushi rice, unless specified.
We make our sushi rice in the traditional method using a large flat-bottomed wooden tub called a Hangiri.  The chef mixes the rice with rice vinegar, sugar, and water using a large wooden paddle called a Shamoji.  The rice is then covered with a cloth and allowed to cool.
