My friends and I ate here after a lobstering cruise. Comfortable interior and nice selection of Japanese cuisine. Most of us selected the lunch bento, which was a nice assortment. Delicious!

We enjoyed the Sushi as well as the outdoor seating. The food was really good. You can watch the people making your sushi which is always fun. An Authentic experience.

Exhausted from the shopping crowds on Fore Street, we opted for dinner along the Old Port. A lovely respite, we shared a phenomenal sushi platter. Nice meal.
