Great hamachi special w/ truffle oil. Sushi was fresh and succulent.

This was some of the most overpriced sushi I have ever had. Sushi is expensive by its nature, and this one just went over the top. If it have been inventive and delicious, I would not have minded. But the food quality was mediocre at best, and tasteless as worst.

The sashmi was wonderfully fresh and expertly presented. There was an outstanding selection of sake and the service was quick and very attentive to all our needs. This restaurant shot to the top of my list of favorites and I will definitely be back.

Love the food but it was freezing inside and people kept hitting the button to open door over and over. Maybe relocate the automatic door opener where people don’t wait?

Hamachi carpaccio was outstanding!

Toro wasn't as good this evening. It's good but not like the ones you have in Japan. It lacks the natural sweetness.

Pork Belly, normally my fav, was a little on the sweet side.

Miso eggplant is very good.

Still will definitely come back though.

The sushi was great! Very fresh. Also had Nabeyaki Soba which was a little disappointing. Very sparse on substantive contents. Was mostly noodles and broth. Needs more of the other ingredients.

Otherwise service was great and our reservation got us past the queue immediately,

The rainbow roll was good, but the veg tempura roll was not. The silver saki sampler was fine.

Had pre-theatre meal here with the wife and was not disappointed. One of the better sushi restaurants we've been to. Restaurant is small but lively on a Saturday evening. Everything we've had was excellent. The nigiri was fresh and some of the fish are straight from Japan (see the specials board). For appetizer, I went for the Agedashi Tofu and Shiitake Tsumire. For sushi, I had the Otoro, Hon-Maguro (Bluefin Tuna), Hamachi and Saba nigiri. Also had the Otoro special roll which was delicious! Wife also had the Tempura Udon which was flavorful. Everything was reasonably priced as our bill came out to just over $100, which included a bottle of Sake! No complaints about service as our waitress was attentive and friendly. Would definitely come here again when we're in the area.
