This tiny little place in downtown Los Gatos was empty so we almost left. But decided to try it anyway. I had the rainbow poke salad my hubby had the salmon bento box. The service was a bit shaky but the food was delightful. My poke salad had a fantastic spicy dressing that did not overpower the fish. The greens... More

Sorry about this one but I found the experience very unremarkable. The sushi was also just OK. The location is great and the place is really cute. I wish the sushi was better.

Went there for a Sushi dinner here in Los Gatos. Quality of fish is good, prices are reasonable and service is friendly. Can really recommend it if you are looking for a good place to eat and drink a Sake for a fair price. Not the upscale place to impress your girlfriend but really good value for money!

We only had a few sushi selections. They were nothing to write home about, but we certainly did not leave hungry.

I often dine at this place, for lunch or dinner. The personnel is very friendly, and the Japanese food is very good. The sushi and sashimi are always very fresh and tasty.

If you have kids, sit on the patio in dry weather - it is gated so good for littles. They were fast, the food was great - been there several times with friends and family.

Love the Sushi - freshest in town! When I go solo, I can sit at the Sushi bar and watch them make my plate, which I always get with hot Saki. They also have a great Bento box for lunch visits - choice of meats or vegetarian. The service is prompt and friendly, but it can get crowded because of... More

After so many years I decided to give sushi another try and I absolutely loved it. the environment was friendly. The sushi's were real good, although I mostly tried the ones with shrimp. Their kids meal is very nice as well.

This is a very good stop for sushi while in Los Gatos. The sushi is very fresh, cool and well presented. The rolls are good but I am not a fan of cream cheese in my rolls and they had a little too much garlic flavor. The hit for our group was the UDON SOUP TEMPURA. This is a huge... More
