We were sat down outside for lunch, were served water by the buss boy and then waited for about 20 min. We never got acknowledged by the waitress/ bartender. She was mixing two cocktails behind the bar for about 10 minutes, then disappeared with them in the back room. We were the only table in the front and I’m guessing there was another one in the back. We never got a chance to eat since we left.

I ordered chirashi and my friends ordered sukiyaki and a sushi roll. My chirashi came with a bowl of miso soup, which is probably the best miso I've had in the US since I can taste the bonito in it. The sashimi in my chirashi is decent, not amazing but pretty standard. Portion size is great, especially given the restaurant's location. Sukiyaki had cabbage, glass noodles, beef and tofu in it, and came with a huge bowl of rice. I think the broth is a bit too sweet and salty, but in general very yummy. Service is a bit slow but the quality is good. Will try to come back!

This is a great neighborhood restaurant with reliable service and high food quality. I'm doing Keto diet now, so that makes it another great place to go eat!

First indoor dining experience during Covid; Craving Sushi. Restaurant was clean and all social distancing protocols being practiced. Had a drink at the bar before going to our table. Food was outstanding. Rainbow Roll, Dragon Roll, Shrimp Potstickers, Yakasobi, Edamame. Recommend! Only reason for not giving 5 stars - service forgot 3 times to bring requested wasabi. Meal half eaten before we got it.

The sushi was some of the best sushi that I have ever had in my life. The ingredients were fresh and perfectly prepared even on one of their busier nights. The service was also beyond formidable and the servers were extremely attentive and diligent. Would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

Got the omakase. We’ve had much better omakase for much lower price (e.g. Tanoshii). The beef felt like it was cooked days ago. The sushi (sashimi, nigiri, maki) were good, maybe stick to those. Overall will try again but not the omakase next time as it’s not worth the amount we paid at all.

Service was slow . We didnt see a busser ever so dirty plates sat til our sushi came. We used to go to the one on Ontario for years and this one in its original location. We haven't been here for over a year and unfortunately there was nothing about our night that would make me not want to give another place a try instead. O made the reservation a week out for my son's birthday there was no mention of that. Th ere nvyhey put us in the very back of the resturant . Just very disappointing all around.
