They have a small shop in the front for take away that is very reasonably priced!! Super good! The inside is also good. The food gets a bit pricey if you order too many items if you arent careful. Good service and food seems fresh!.

Normally have to wait to get in it's always busy for dinner. Reasonably priced dishes and service respectable considering how busy they are. If you've not done a sushi train great way to start.
