This place is right next to my job and they all rave about it but its not open during lunch hours. So I had to try it after work with my husband. We got here about an hour after they opened we were seated right away and my husband wanted to sit out side. The umbrellas helps block the sun but we still got fried but thats our fault lol. Our waiter Bobby was so helpful he gave us suggestions and was very attentive. Everyone we came in contact with was so helpful and nice. Everything we had was fresh and cooked to order. I will continue to make this place one of my regular spots.
Excellent food and really good service. The sashimi is very fresh and each fish included tasted good. I went 2 days in a row because I liked it so much and while some staples remained (salmon, tuna, fatty tuna) the rest were swapped for what was good that day. They have some creative rolls and there are a couple of hand roll options as well. The drinks are good as well and they have a robust menu of them. The weakest part is dessert. Their vanilla ice cream is quite bland, it's actually hard to taste the vanilla flavor at times. Their crispy banana with ice cream uses wonton wrappers that just don't taste good. The portions of their desserts are really good though and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I got each time.
The sushi here was delicious. The vibes were also nice think modern sushi bar house music, modern decor, and great food. The only downside was the bar service couldve been improved. I was never formally greeted although there were 3 staff behind the bar, it took some time to order, and plates remained on the bar well after they were done with. Good food, good vibes, nice restaurant, but staff could be improved. 4 stars.
We purchased food through Ubereats. The delivery time ended up getting pushed back due to a lack of drivers. It took 20 minutes longer than planned, but the food was better than some of the food Ive had from other places fresh. The calamari was cooked perfectly, it was melt in your mouth good. The sushi was all amazing. Miso soup was great. We were VERY impressed! We will be back anytime we are in the area.
Good sushi at a good price, parking on site which is a rare gem on that side of town. Service was mediocre... Had to ask for water pitcher refills more than once, and we actually were intending to order one more roll to share, but our server brought us the check (without us asking for it) so we were like "oh...ok then. Guess we're done." Our friends ordered drinks and liked them. It's pretty far away for us but if I were on that side of town more I'd definitely return. So many delicious-sounding rolls on the menu!
