We are not normally Japanese food people but the food here is absolutely beautiful. The chef has put together an outstanding menu at a very reasonable price. Do not miss it!

I picked up sushi takeaway last night. For just over $20 I got a very generous serving of nigiri and small rolls. What I loved most was how fresh it was and the variety of seafood on the nigiri. I’ll be back!

I was so excited to finally try this place, after missing it on my last business trip. I ordered the edamame, miso soup and some salmon sushi. It was so delicious and quick from the kitchen!

Went into town and a few restaurants closed on a Tuesday night. This had a good menu at reasonable prices with friendly staff.
