    Food is overpriced for what it is, even in a tourist area. The server was very nice and was very attentive, which made up for the lackluster sushi. I couldn't recommend going, it's on a busy traffic circle and while it wasn't an intimate dinner, I defnitely would not recommend going for a date there. There must be better sushi places in the area, I'm just sorry this was not one of them.

    One of the best sushi places we’ve visited in the Santa Monica area. Food was truly delicious! Rolls were creative and the fish was very fresh. Veggie options were perfect. Veggie goyoza, veggie tempura, and their special veggie rolls with tempura asparagus, were great because they were both flavorful and moist without being oily.

    When making a reservation we asked for a warm table. Upon arrival we confirmed our request and saw the perfect table inside. They proceeded to sit us outside with no heat lamp. The weather on the night we went was 55 degrees.

    The outdoor patio is set up really cute and with social distancing in mind. It’s a nice area to be in. The service was good and the staff is friendly. Sushi is good, but nothing stood out. It’s a good place to grab a quick sushi bite. Not a place if you want to have an amazing raw fish experience.

    An absolute favorite with us, both before COVID and now during. They have made the necessary changes to the venue to accommodate people in a safe and responsible way. Staff wear masks and visors, our temperatures are always taken before entering, and masks must be warn when moving around the restaurant and using the restroom. High quality sushi, a great sake selection (the bamboo sake is a must-try) in a low key, relaxed atmosphere.

    Rolls were sub-par as was the rest of the food. There are so many great sushi restaurants to go to in LA, I don't know that I will come back here. I do like the vibe/ location -- it seems to be a good spot to start a night out. Also love the new outdoor seating -- hope this stays.
