Wonderfully prepared sushi at a reasonable price. Lots of variety with a friendly, helpful staff. We also enjoyed our Green Tea Mochi for dessert.

Came here for some take away sushi and it was delicious. Ordered miso soup and the tiger roll from the specials. It was freshly made in front of me and packaged up well. Friendly staff and good food.

We enjoyed the food and the kindness of the staff. Sushi was very good and sashimi incredible. Miso soup average. The price is correct. I think it worth it to give a try.

We had a Sushi platter for two and it was freshly made, quite big and really delicious. Price was around USD 50 which I think is great value for good price. Drinks were quite cheap. Again!
