What a lovely experience. The service was outstanding and the food is amazing. Try the waguy carpaccio and the Japanese truffle risotto. They have pretty fast service considering the size of the restaurant and the prices are consistent with the quality of the experience.

Always the best sushi in the Miami area. In Bal Harbor mall/shops. When we are in town we love to eat lunch here. Really the best sushi around and the best spicy tuna crispy rice IN THE WORLD! Full stop.
