Had a fabulous first time dining experience here on Saturday night for dinner. Arrived only knowing that the sushi chef had an impressive reputation and otherwise didn't quite know what to expect. It's a little divey and small, surprisingly not in downtown Sanford as I would've assumed a new & popular dining destination to be. We got there shortly after happy hour (5-7) and it was busy, but not full, as we were seated immediately. Our waiter was very friendly and answered our questions politely. We ordered the calamari which comes with a creamy jalapeño sauce that compliments it nicely. It was mostly rings, but that's my preference anyway, so I was pleased. We ordered gyoza as well and I think it was the best gyoza I've ever had. My dining companion ordered two pieces of sashimi, which she thoroughly enjoyed, and a bbq eel roll, her go-to sushi roll, and she said it was the best she'd ever had - very saucy and just the right temperature. I'd never tasted eel before, so I tried a piece of hers. It was very good and very sweet (from the eel sauce); I'm not sure I could tell you what eel itself tastes like. I got a California roll, which they make with real crab and a lot of it. I also ordered an Albacore roll, which had spicy mayo on it and was very good. We were full, but still tempted by the dessert menu. They had black sesame ice cream, which I have never had before, but it was phenomenal. I could've easily eaten another entire serving. The prices were very reasonable and I will definitely be back to try the ramen and other offerings.
