Great service, and extensive menu and beautiful fresh sushi and sashimi, as well as other Japanese dishes. Something for everyone. The crispy calamari sushi had some of the best calamari I've ever eaten. We loved our dinner here.

This place has great sushi and other dishes. Every time I come to Monterey I grab dinner here. The staff is friendly and the Sushi is great! I ate here 2 out of 3 dinners while I was in town. It is a must go!

We had bento box lunch. Had good selections on the menu and had special off menu items for October. Sashimi was excellent and is my favorite at Japanese restaurants. Wait staff was great and super fast. Good value for the money.

Great sushi and the staff was also very nice. The fatty tuna melted in our mouth. It was so good for dinner that we went back for lunch before leaving town.

Despite its unprepossessing appearance, this restaurant is absolutely fab. We'd been in California 5 or 6 days and been fortunate enough to eat at lots of the "famous" restaurants in San Francisco before heading to Monterey. After a morning's whale watching, we decided to head...More
