    We loved the omakase food tasing experience. Only one item missed the mark. We recommend taking out the chicken from this tasting experience as it was too salty and had too much cartilage that we had to spit out. This is why we rated a 4 and not 5. The service however, was impeccable.

    A delicious and satisfying experience. Service was impeccable and the food was delicious. The ambiance was nice as well. My only complaint is that the music was too loud given the size and space and how many people were there.
