Window seating was cold and bench seats are not that comfortable.
Other than that everything was really good.

This by far is the best Sushi place to eat. I always brag about how wonderful the food is to anyone who loves Sushi. The staff is always pleasant and if you go often, they recognize you and greet you like family 😉

Our second time there, although the food was good, we were disappointed by the service- She acted like it was a bother to ask questions, and was not attentive to us and what we needed. It took a while to get our food. The lack of service, made the experience not pleasant at all.

Overhyped. The drinks were either way too strong or overly sweet. The rolls were overpriced. Other places in the area have caught up to them. I don't think I'll be returning.
