    Omakase for 5 was incredible and extravagant and at the end of the evening, overly ambitious! So so much spectacular food, beautifully presented and artfully served. What a treat.

    This is a great place. We arrived at a quiet time on New Year's day and the place filled up while we ate a wonderful meal of excellent sushi and sashimi with wine and green tea. The servers were attentive and helpful with suggestions about which specials might appeal based on our other preferences--which proved quite accurate. We had a great time!

    I booked it based on excellent reviews and the place was disappointing. Apart from nice personnel and decent feel, everything else left much to be desired. Both sushi and sashimi were bland, and in comparison with our favourite sushi places were not as fresh. Overall it was too much for the level of food we received.
