This is the most unassuming restaurant in San Antonio. The outside of the building may not look like much, but the sushi is to die for! Incredibly affordable and outrageously delicious! I love sitting in the Japanese style dining room! So relaxing, great service and...More

Ok so my wife and I love Japanese food. This place was an absolute shock. We walked to the building which looked abandoned but it's like those spy movies, where you walk inside and didn't expect to see the beautiful sushi bar with exotic Japanese...More

This place is different from all Japanese Resteraunts I know from San Antonio. They are very Authentic, no Modern choices. Try their rice balls also know as Unigiri. It's a Triangle shape rice ball wrapped with seaweed, you can get it with plum filling or...More

We love sushi and this place was a huge disappointment. As our first visit, the waitress was semi pleasant, however, the Sheboy behind the counter (w/ baseball cap) was rude to every old and new customer that walked in. It had no people or social...More
