I have to say the omakase I had was the best I ever had even in the country. The chefs are so sophisticated and the sushi were made just as the best they could be. It's definitely worth a try. And the prices are much...More

Recently came here several times to try their new lunch menu. The quality is great and the price is affordable! Would definitely recommend the sushi lunch that offers o-toro, uni, scallop, botan ebi, and more.

Had lunch there a couple of weeks ago. Cosy restaurant and confident chef. Very good quality food and service but for me it wasn't outstanding enough to justify a $100 bill for a $50 lunch.A destination for high rolling executives with money to burn.

Omakasae sushi course is our favourite. Try to get seating at the bar and the food is even better because Chef prepare your sushi one after one when you finish, with dressing as well, which makes the taste just right.

No, it isn't -- we usually order an appetizer or two, miso soup and then the Jyo sushi, which is enough food. The quality is outstanding. You won't be disappointed if you like quality sushi.
