We sat in the outdoor garden and three of us ate sushi to our heart’s content, had 4 beers, and bill came to about a hundred bucks. Very reasonably priced. Fresh fish, ordered most everything off the specialty board and plenty more.

People have been telling us to try this place and we have been there plenty of times and have never gained entry. When we did we found the owner captivating but the sushi nothing to write home about and the bill for dinner overpriced.

You can sit right outside in a sort of open-air anteroom, or enter through the doors and sit in the actual anteroom, or open the inner doors and head to the counter where there is no seating. The place has a plucky, rustic, charm to...More

Combo plates that are great to start, then add a specialty roll or two. Compliment with hot saki or Kirin Ichiban and you have a very reasonable, very delicious meal. Uni is very good, as is the Kona Sunset roll. Parking behind the building is...More

This sushi is seriously good (and we're sushi snobs) - especially their specialty rolls. The prices are unreal and we expected subpar fish but were encouraged by all the reviews. We couldn't believe how good it was. As others have mentioned, there can be a...More
