We dined here for a business lunch in a group of 7. Food was great and there were lots of options for rolls, and quality was fresh and tasty.
There wasn't a great selection for sushi and sashimi platters, but the ones they did have were good quality.
The restaurant was very busy during lunch hour, with many downtown business patrons. There were only 3 servers for the whole restaurant, so getting their attention was challenging, but they were able to manage, barely. One or 2 more servers would've made a huge difference in service.
Overall, pretty good experience, and I would come back here again for a business lunch. 4/5.

Good food and I've been many times for lunch. We used a Travel Zoo voucher (valid after 5 p.m.) but the menu online is not the one that was available at the restaurant when we got there - it was WAY smaller. Nonetheless the food was fine; the spicy tuna crunchy rolls are always excellent. Wanted more variety though to try things I hadn't tried before.

This is bar none the freshest sashimi in town. Also, the beef tatiaki is a hard 10 out of 10.

The food was fast to arrive but we were disappointed that the rice on the sushi was not sticky. Ever piece of sushi we picked up with the chopsticks broke in half leaving half the rice on the plate.

The taste of the food was ok - It wasn’t extraordinary. We also found it a little pricey for what we received, but we may give them one more try in the future it might have just been an off day.

California rolls where sticky and tasteless. The place was pretty dead which seems to be common. They don’t carry products like Strongbow or similar.

It was very cold inside the restaurant. If you go there during the winter, make sure you bring a heavy jacket. It seem like they do not turn on the heat. Food was mediocre. Sushi was good, we ordered Saba and Yellowtail sushi. The rolls were not very good. Calamari was not good. I would not return to this establishment.

It was good, especially for the value with the voucher. The restaurant decor is nice, it wasn't busy at all on a Friday night so it was quiet just how we like it. The service was outstanding.

Hi there I think the rules for the groupon that apply at the restaurant is really bad as they lie when I ask them when did u change the rules they say last Summer and I get a different response
And I recommend a friend as we always go and now with this they really will not go back
And the kids eat more then the adults

Very good Sushi, according to my wife the sushi connoisseur, reasonably priced. Nice ambiance, booths or tables. I have not figured out the best parking yet, after 6 and on weekends parking on the street if you can find a spot. Well worth the try.
