Great sushi, enjoyed very much the Jazz roll, very busy place with great decor and staff as well as reasonable cost.

Unusual venue, with very small tables fairly close together. Lots of interesting choices on the menu, and the waitress gave us good advice. Definitely want to go back again to try more unusual items.
