The niguri is tasty. Very fresh yellowtail. You have to try the mild chicken wings. Again best I've ever had and the rolls are delicious. Good selection. Also go with Kirrin on tap. Good eats

I have gone here over 15 times and have never walked away disappointed. Everything from the appetizers to the sushi rolls are made with love... not to mention everything is so FRESH! I would recommend this place to anyone because there are options for everyone!
