Some of the best sashimi and nigiri in the city. The ambiance is great and the service is fantastic. The combination of flavors in the specialty pieces is spectacular and I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve tried so far. Can’t wait to go there again soon.

Overall it’s a good restaurant. We liked the sushi, but the salmon collar was cooked to death. It was a dry, chewy mess, filled with bones. A disappointment of a dish. Other than the collar, food was good and the grated wasabi was worth it.

The food was amazing. We came expecting good food but we were blown away by each and every dish. Embarrassed to admit that the fried chicken was also a highlight but the sushi stood on its own. Will definitely be coming back.

The staff was also extremely attentive, knowledgeable, and personable.

We were there for Chef Naoki’s tuna event. We had every dish that he had prepared especially for this event. It was all better than great and just out of the park FANTASTIC.
Our server Charles is both a pro and charming. Table visits from The Mgr, Bill were most appreciated. My wife & I both remarked how gracious everyone was and that we felt welcomed & appreciated.

This is why we keep returning; fresh, well-prepared food and a top notch group taking care of the guests.

A great evening. Go Naoki!!!!

My husband and I are big fans of Naoki. We were just slightly disappointed on our last visit to find out that there was no grilled fish special that evening. But that won't keep us from going back! We feel it's the best sushi in town.

Naoki was simply outstanding in every way. Best sushi and maki I’ve ever had, gracious servers, quiet atmosphere. All made for a wonderful birthday evening. I’m eager to return on another special occasion and will recommend this restaurant to all of my fellow sushi lovers.

Great food but the pacing was terrible on this occasion and several plates of food showed up almost at the same time. Chef needs to better instruct his staff on attention to this detail.
