    Since losing their head chief jack the restaurant lost its creativity some of the new items feel like your run of the mill American cater rolls . The quality of the fish seems to still be there in that sense they are still in above the regular sushi spots

    So overall I think the place was ok. The dishes were creative but the service is less than par. Place felt more like a bar than it did a restaurant. What I ordered : 1. shrimp ceviche ( yuzu and shrimp is a great combo, great starter dish ) 2. Poke on a leaf : lots of flavors bit overwhelming unable to taste the fish 3. Yellowtail : I like this better than poke on a leaf, highly recommend 5. Salmon nigiri : loved the quality here and the taste : I would come back for this. Although I had ordered 4 of these and not sure if it should have taken 45 min to bring the last two 6. Bluefin chu toro: this was good but probably would try the bluefin o toro instead Drinks : 1. Wrath do ryu : great starter drink 2. Commitment issues : good drink 3. Koi reviver : not my fav but it had potential

    Date night and we loved this place! Food was fresh , well prepared and savory. Drinks are also well crafted and presented. The only thing that surprised me but it didn’t ruin any aspect of the date was the place is smaller than perceived on social media, so you don’t get a lot of privacy at your table because they are close. Shoot my date and I can’t wait to go back again, sushi lovers I RECOMMEND!

    We had the salmon nigiri, spicy tuna and crab rolls, and the shrimp ceviche, along with Kuro Kuboto sake and the Enabler (a whisky based cocktail). My daughter and I are both sushi fans, and we agreed that the food was excellent, and the service was very good. It's on the list to visit again - it's a great choice when you have tickets for the Phoenix Theatre Company (it's just 2 miles south on Central).

    Food was amazing. Bartender was especially attentive since we were sitting at the bar. Would have preferred a table but ended up enjoying sitting at the bar. Cocktails were unique and delicious. Had a scary experience in the parking lot with a guy walking up to our car, but can’t knock the restaurant for that. Be observant! Otherwise had an extremely nice dinner and will come back if we are in the Phoenix area.

    Lovely low-lit chill atmosphere with modern wicker accents and MCM brass. Cozy banquet seating. The cocktails are strong but balanced. Nothing too sweet. Let’s talk about that ceviche… best I’ve ever had. The shrimp is so fresh! The lime and peppers complemented it perfectly! And the house made chips are the perfect vehicle for scooping up each tangy, peppery bite. Next was the seared scallop. Just the lightest char for that hint of smoky umami. A savory nip that leaves you wanting more. Then the shrimp tempura roll. Yummy fried texture and tastes wonderful with a quick dredge through the plate sauce and house made soy sauce. It was the sushi so nice, I ordered it twice. The same mix B2B. Typically I order sushi with extra wasabi and ginger. Here it’s not even on the plate and I didn’t miss it. Also had the Berry White for a second cocktail and it’s just as smooth and intoxicating as Mr. White himself. I loved, loved, loved every sip and bite. ATP my new sushi go to and I can’t believe I now have a sushi anything in AZ. Oh and the waitstaff are cheerful, delightful people who love what they do. ATP is a perfect date that will have you humming “can’t get enough of your love baby” all night long.

    The best sushi in Phoenix! Eclectic place with house made soy sauce and dry rubs. The cocktail list is in a class of its own. My favorites are the lime butter salmon, coffee crusted salmon sashimi, seared scallop sashimi, and the Guns and Rose cocktail. Happy hour is the best time to go with 20% off most things. You will NOT be sorry you tried this place!
