I got a to-go order to eat back in my hotel room. The restaurant was small, but jam packed to the rafters. I thought this was a good sign. Sadly, I found the food itself to be mediocre. I've had much better Japanese food elsewhere....More

Doesn’t look like much but WOW. very fresh fish. Nice spring mix salad with a nice hint of ginger. Service was excellent. Friendly and homey. I do like sitting at a sushi bar and this place lacks that but it okay. Must go.
