First things first, I want to inform all diners that this is an authentic Japanese restaurant. It is tiny, meticulously clean, stylish in a traditionally minimalist way, it is run like clock work and uses the freshest and highest quality ingredients possible. As such, be informed that, JUST AS THOUGH YOU ARE DININNG IN TOKYO, complete parties only can be seated...the size of the restaurant dictates that any empty chairs cut severely into the day's or night's revenue. Those of us who know and love this restaurant and its staff cherish it and want it to continue to be successful and to maintain very reasonable pricing...so we do not contest this rule.
The food is the best and most variety I have had at a Sushi restaurant and every single roll offered (and there are a huge number of them) is prepared with the same care and thought to make it delightful in both appearance and taste. Chirashi bowls are a special love of my Japanese colleague and she tells us that the varieties of this are wonderfully prepared and very delicious. If you crave sashimi, then you will likely faint at the white tuna and other fresh selections...they are such high quality and so fresh. My personal favorites are Maki rolls and the variety available surpass any other restaurant on any continent I have seen in a sushi restaurant (including Japan, all of Asia, all of Europe, all of Middle East, Russia - and many countries have great sushi). Tokyo Love Story (a salmon and tuna roll covered in baked scallop in a creamy, spicy sauce) is something that you will hear many people talking about...it is superb. All the rolls are wonderful but other favorites of mine are Bahama Mama (with conch) and Crunch roll. There is something at this restaurant for every person in the family, whether they eat raw or not. The Katsu is very lightly breaded and not oily, the Tempura is delicious. The quality of the food is completely consistent over the 13 years I have gone there....and every one of my international friends with whom I have shared this little gem has left raving about it.
