We never miss this place when in the N.C. mountains, it’s the best! Fresh fish, great drinks! If you’re in Asheville do not pass this restaurant up!

Our "gag of six" ate there last night and were thoroughly pleased with every aspect; food excellent, service outstanding, atmosphere just right! I wish the bill would have been smaller, but the wine & beer we had justified the expense.
Absolutely fantastic food, excellent service... some of the best sushi in WNC. The geisha roll is amazing, as are the spicy crab salad and seaweed salad. Good for business lunches, as well as romantic dates, and family dinners. Friendly staff.
The food is always fresh, delicious, and appealing. Excellent varied menu with choices for all tastes and expectations. Nice atmosphere and excellent, friendly service.

I ordered an entre of lobster tail, shrimp, & scallops with asparagus. Delicious, flavorful, & cooked perfectly. Can't...More
Our waiter was very professional. Didn't once ask "how are things". We ordered the double roll sushi lunch with miso soup. Very tasty, generous and inexpensive. It was the first time I heard a Japanese woman speaking English with a southern accent. Highly recommended.
