Located in a nice area. Street parking extremely limited but public parking lot nearby is a very short walk. Nice decor with a good staff. Booths and chairs available. Wonderful menu selections so there is something for everyone. Walnut shrimp was delicious - highly revommended.

Fresh, beautiful and delicious sushi appetizers, we brought our own wine, were not rushed, and we all enjoyed our meals. I look forward to being back since there were some other things on the menu I want to try-Vietnamese steamed flounder was light and fresh
