Make a reservation or wait, it is worthwhile. Nice sushi and other japanese food. Good service. The food is made in planning sight. So very trustfully. Good prices, nice portions. No complaints, next visit in San Diego we will come again.

Gluten free spy sauce and a very helpful chef made it a good meal. Service was very quick and the spicy tuna was excellent.
