Celebrated my mom’s birthday. Has a great booth in the corner away from everyone so we could comfortably fit our stroller. Food was great and service was fast and friendly.

I gave them 2 stars for good service. This was my worst dining experience in Miami. The food was underwhelming and the sushi was chewy. The presentation of the food was great, but the actual taste was meh. Also, there were a ton of flies which was unexpected since the seating was indoors. Maybe they were just having an off day🤷‍♀️

Trying multiple cuisines while in South Beach this was our Japanese selection. Our server Kyoko was great. Engaging with the staff is always desired and she didn’t let us down. Appreciate management that lets it happen. Next visit will be planned around a night she is working.

No ambiance, below average sushi, pretty bad sushi rolls, and way expensive for what is offered. I would avoid coming to this sushi place for sure

Overall was a pleasant surprise. Restaurant is in an old art deco hotel so was a bit concerned and entry chairs/couches had seen better days. Music (DJ) was blasting so thought we were at the wrong place. The place was hopping. We were seated outside by the pool which was a bit odd, in very low chairs and a matching height table. Not ideal for eating but worked out OK, but would be a challenge for older rickety people to get up. But the food was very good to excellent and the service was outstanding. Very creative dishes (eg, the seared avocado's is a must) and all the fish was extremely fresh. A bit on the pricey side but it's South Beach so it was to be expected. Worth a visit.

Just the worst in terms of value and price. Spent over $140 there and got 2 miso soups, 3 pieces of sushi, 1 California role, 1 shiskabob and one small sake. All the reviews you read hear are nothing but bait from restaurant staff covering for themselves. You will notice that right after this review there will be a glowing and fantastic review.
Save your money and go anywhere else in south beach for
A better experience.

The food was phenomenal! I enjoyed every part of my appetizer, meal and dessert. However, our server maybe came to our table 3 times. We would have ordered more drinks, but she never came by to ask. And if she did come by, she cleared our table and didn’t even look up or ask if we needed anything. And then after we waited 20 min to pay, she only ran one card when we wanted it split twice. Which would have been the least of our concerns had we not been ignored the entire time. It’s very unfortunate because we really did enjoy the food.

Reached out prior to reservation if they could accommodate gluten free which prior they reached out saying they absolutely could. At restayrant, They had 1 cold sushi roll option, nothing else on menu could be accommodated. We expected more for a very pricey dinner.

probably one of the best restaurant I have been to in miami, in a long time, where the quality of the food is really worth the price you pay. Unlike most places in the city.

I will try to go back soon with friends. I was blown away.
Thank you for the memorable evening

Great Miami Spice menu. The Hamachi Jalapeño, spicy tuna roll, salmon & brussell sprouts were excellent. We didn’t care for the cod, & it’s normally one of our fav Japanese dishes. Beautiful fun space.

Wow! Everything was amazing! One of the best restaurants in Miami! We did their Miami Spice menu and very thing was incredible. Each bite was better than the last. My husband and I are already talking about going back and we were there two nights ago lol. The service was also some of the Beat we’ve had in Miami!!! Don’t walk RUN to Azabu!

We arrived last night (Monday) with no reservation for 2 at 8.45pm, and was told by the hostess she couldn’t sit us for 20 mins.
I went on open table and bookings were available for 2 for instant dining. When I addressed this, the hostess got her manager who gave me a ridiculous excuse that they leave tables open for last minutes bookings, therefore if I wanted to dine straight away I had to book on open table, so I did.

The restaurant was almost empty, and was so for the remainder of our meal, so it was evident the staff were just trying to be awkward/ on some power trip.

After all the fuss they made about me booking it on open table, and making the reservation on the app in front of them, they didn’t even have the decency to confirm I attended, marking me as a no show!!!!

The overall experience was awful. The staff were all careless and unfriendly, which is a shame, since the food is great.

As a local to Miami Beach, I’ve dined here several times, this will be the last, when service is so much better at other sushi restaurants, if I’m spending my money, I’ll spend it where I feel welcomed.
