The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the staff are very friendly. The sushi is high quality and fresh. The miso soup is excellent. For appetizers, the fish tacos and the shrimp/chicken tempura are the best we have ever tasted anywhere. We love salmon so we ordered the Spezza which has spicy salmon on the inside with a layer of salmon on the outside. The Neptune roll is filled with a good portion of tasty lobster. These rolls are huge and absolutely delicious. The Japanese Asahi beer is crisp and refreshing which goes well with sushi. For non-sushi eaters, there are lots of other great choices such as the teriyaki chicken.

Tonight we had Rideau roll, Spezza roll, white tuna sashimi. Our son got soup and rice (his favorite there) and we had a great time. Staff is awsome and funny and the owners are always there to welcome you. Why go somewhere else when you get quality, good price and good time all in one stop...

In the middle of the week, I had their lunch special: Miso soup, teriyaki chicken, one pint of sapporo beer @ $9. Total with tax & tip came to about $26
The restaurant is large and busy around lunch time on a street close to the bysard market that offers a restaurant every next door. Affluence is a sign of a good value restaurant for the neighbourhood.
Miso soup is superb *****; Sapporo draft beer is OK ***; the best thing about their teriyaki chicken is the restaurant know how to create value without adding to much costs.
Dumplings are nice ****; romaine salad is refreshing ****; chow mein is good ****; plain rice is well executed.
chicken is nice **** size portion of chicken is small ***; Value for price is OK ***; wifi and service is good ****; overall rating is ****

We were walking along Bywards market and spied this joint.. I was craving for some sushi and the reviews seemed good so we tried this. We weren't disappointed ... the spezza spicy salmon was amazing! And the ramen and chicken yakitori were really good but the sushi roll was just out of this world ... with tiny tempura flakes which elevated it.. will come back when I am in Ottawa again..
