Everything they did was done well. The sushi cuts were modest however the sashimi was cut very generously. I was with a group and used the sunken tables in the tatami room. We shared several cold appetizers, a sushi/sashimi platter, chicken katsu, udon seafood, a couple orders of uni and some hamachi kama. We struggled to finish and had to... More

We ordered 3 makis, miso soup, tempura, and ocha All tasted delicious! I don't normally eat raw fish, but I could tolerate theirs - all melt in your mouth Nice atmosphere, too! Our waitress was very nice and helpful. My only complain is it's kinda pricey.

My son had noodles that were chewy and very well seasoned with a... More

Almost... I can't say it was exactly oki, but it reminded me of it. Maybe it was the atmosphere. Sushi definitely better than high dollar, top rated sushi places in the area. BYOB is a plus too!
