This restaurant has been around for over 20 years. It is in a very "Tokyo" location, in the basement of a nondescript office building. Getting there is an adventure, through the office lobby and down a dark stairway. But when you enter the restaurant, you...More

Great dinner. The food is very fresh and tasty. We had the udon soup with tempura shrimp. There is a good range of choices from the traditional sushi/sashimi to the more original

This was a very surprising place and even if I have eaten a lot of Japanese food this was amazing and new. The service was excellent and the Sake list goes on forever. We will definitely be back.

The place is nice with a good genuine Japanese atmosphere. The food is fantastic and confirmed our expectation. The quality of the sashimi is excellent although the quantity is not very generous. Gluten free option available. Highly recommend.

I didn't that experience as well because I live in NYC. But I guess the staff of the restaurant can help with it, although they didn't really have big space down there.
