A friend took me here for lunch last week. First, because of its upstairs location, I never knew it existed. Next, the food, service and ambiance were a pleasant treat. We each ordered the Omakase Lunch Special plus extras, and green tea. We enjoyed toro,...More

I went for lunch, knowing that the place lacks charm and is situated in a shopping center but ready to compromise for the sake of (apparently) outstanding sushi. Well, i had the sushi lunch consisting in 5 pieces of sushi plus one crab roll. The...More

Moderately priced, but excellent, sushi. Always Chef's Choice at the sushi bar.
