Easy and inexpensive happy hour. Sushi rolls are freshly made but the ingredients are only average compared to other more expensive sushi restaurants.

We sat at the sushi bar on a weeknight and found the sushi chef to be especially charming. Everything was fresh and attractively presented.

Eilona, our server and guide last night helped us navigate their gastronomic offerings and she worked hard to keep our tiny table covered with epicurean offerings the likes of which I hadn't expected to be found in a little village off the beaten path. We tried a little of everything and weren't disappointed. Eilona was pleasant though harried as we... More

Went during happy hour. Had an outside table which was nice. The California Roll (added cream cheese) and Pot Stickers were good. There was a misunderstanding with my order, but it was fixed immediately. The waiter seemed a little flustered and accidentally gave us a check from another table. We did have a large group.

Great sushi and good service. Loved sitting on the patio. Absolutely loved that it was on the second level so we could see some views of Prospect Street. There is an elevator within feet of the entrance to the restaurant, which made it easy for wheelchairs.

I agree not authentic jap but still tasty and our server Cassandra rocks! The prices very reasonable (cheaper than LV). Noisy and vibrant with outside seating over looking street. Definitely recommend it.

This is not quite an authentic Japanese dining experience but it was not bad. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant is good. We had some sushi rolls and sashimi - I would say this is more of a Japanese fusion dining experience. They have healthy options too and cooked options like stir fries... More
