    We got great service, drinks were tasty. Sushi was expensive and fish was not good quality. They had a crab roll listed as a special for $18 filled with strands of imitation crab. Disappointed is a understatement.

    Not as good as it used to be. Iced green tea was sour flavor (hah?). All the sushi rolls were topped with a sweet brown sauce (sine when this is done?). Most of the sushi rolls have shrimp and cream cheese, and several with crab (which is of course imitation crab); what about just plain old fish without the cream cheese?

    Service was attentive and quick. Food wow interesting. Sushi with a Venezuela twist. We tried the ceviche roll and another one made with fried plantains. Both delicious. The live piano player (Saturday night) created a fun ambiance. The place was packed by 9 pm so make a reservation. We are from out of town and truly enjoyed our evening.

    After arriving it did take some time to get seated even though there were tables open. It took a long time to get our order. Our total time there was 1 3/4 hours for a table of 4. We didn’t order anything difficult. I saw food setting on the counter for almost 15 before it was taken to the customer. The food was good. It had a nice mix of Japanese and latin flavors.

    Food was good. I don’t want to take away from the chefs as that was good. But the service kinda ruined it for me and I ended up just being really frustrated with our server. It was also slow so I don’t know why she was taking so long. She passed by our table 3 times before she finally brought me my drink. She also forgot to put in my sushi order. I asked for a bowl so I could serve my daughter some food and I saw her hanging out by the sushi bar for a good 5+ mins while my food was getting cold waiting for the bowl. We ended up emptying my soup bowl so I could feed my kiddo. She wasn’t necessarily mean, just super slow and forgetful. While the food was good, the service was horrible enough that I wouldn’t return. That sucks for whoever this business owner is that the service is brining it downhill.

    Came for Houston Restaurant Weeks. Largely ignored by waitstaff most of the night; never checked on, received wrong dessert and had to flag multiple servers down to receive the bill. Probably would have gotten better service if we spoke Spanish. Tried to enjoy the experience since we live close, but probably won’t be returning.

    The food was easily the best part. Very fresh and tasted great. However, for such a small amount of tables we only got service twice for being there over an hour that. That being what we wanted to drink and food order. Every other time we had to flag someone down. Overall 3 out of 5 stars for me. Would still go again.

    Made a reservation for 7:30 for Experience Table and no one would serve us. Had to ask to be served and was told they were busy. Pointless making a reservation. You need to know the waiters to get service. Crappy restaurant.

    The best of this place is the service provided by the whole team but especially by Jorge “Lo Haré” Every time we go there we trust in his recommendations and he always is right Since we moved from SouthFl (we went to another restaurant with the same name un Doral, Fl) and went to this place in Katy, TX, this is our go-to for sushi

    Had high hopes for this place. But there were signs…… it is located next door to a crematorium, but didn’t want to be dramatic. We were seated quickly, as we had made a reservation. They had been advertising an ESPRESSO martini on their social media just 48 hours ago and when we arrived they had the drink scrolling across a TV screen ….. so I knew it was going to be tasty. But sadly, they didn’t have the drink available, or were unable to make. Sad face. So my husband asks what drafts they have, because it’s on the menu….. and our waitress says, “oh we don’t have any draft beer”. Okaaaay. We ordered…. The himachi white fish was fishy (frozen) and poorly cut and plated. We tried to order baby octopus but they had none. And we had to flag our waitress for water, wasabi, soy sauce, ginger and the check. All of which were taken care of by someone else’s waiter that kept seeing our struggle lol ( he was actually very good). The place is too small to need to flag someone down. First and last time. But the spicy tuna roll was good and delicious ice water.
