Everything was great. I especially enjoyed the fried tofu. Plus, the California roll was excellent too. It's only a couple of blocks from Constitution Square. Awesome customer service!

Friendly staff in this tiny, dark sushi joint off Washington Square. After reading great TA and yelp reviews, my husband and I thought our entrees were just above average. The rice was off and none of the fish really popped, although it was all fresh. what we ate: agedashi tofu nigiri salmon, tuna, fluke, shrimp, and yellowtail spicy tuna roll... More

This is my go-to sushi place! I stop in here for lunch sometimes when I'm alone or with another person; their lunch specials are a great bargain. Dinner is also good. The sushi never fails to be fresh and delicious. There are a lot of great creative specialty rolls on the menu. My fiancé, who is not a big sushi... More

I've eaten here several times, and was excited to take my wife here on Friday night. To be fair we didn't have a reservation, but what happened was absolutely ridiculous. We walked in around 7:30 p.m., the hostess said they were booked but we could wait for an open table or bar space. As I walk back to use the... More

Had a nice dinner in this modern sushi restaurant. It was fresh, well plated and interesting. Service was good but not excellent. Definitely worth trying.

The rolls were unique and delicious. The fish was fresh and tasty. The ambiance is second to none. I stopped in on a whim while traveling on business and enjoyed the food so much, I've been back twice since my first visit.

Great sushi and experience all around. Can't go wrong. If you aren't from the area, there is a parking garage down the road a few hundred feet for $10. Plenty to see around the restaurant. Reasonably priced and portioned. Will be back.

Ok, I've had a lot of sushi in my day, but this has to be my favorite spot to get it! My friend went here a few times and I was always so envious of her food that she decided to take me here to try for myself. Oh mylanta! I loved it! So fresh! So tasty! It was freakin'... More

I tried Fat Salmon based on all the good reviews. Rather disappointing. Maybe I missed something. I went for the gyoza, a staple of Japanese fare. When they say "fried" here they don't mean pan fried, they mean deep fried. Okay, I ordered them fried so I ate them. Bland. Decided to try the steamed gyoza. Only slightly better. Tried... More
