Awesome sushi. The sea urchin is the best. We got the Omatase selection and it was outstanding. The sashimi was fresh, the rolls were yummy. Had to order seconds and thirds. Must try if you like good and authentic sushi.

We tried so many dishes that I can't remember each one but the fatty tuna and raw octopus stood out along with the spring roll. We loved the ambiance, service and the food and recommend it highly. Only reason not five stars is that it...More
