An overall mediocre experience. Food wasn't fresh tasting, service was fine but a bit too much, and it was pretty loud.

Delicious food, great service and very cool ambiance. We had the Hamachi Collar and the Kobe Beef Buns as appetizers, both were very tasty and perfectly done. Sashimi and sushi rolls were also delicious, the Lohi roll is a must. We were very impressed and will be back to try everything else on the menu! We sat at the sushi bar and would do it again.

Great food and dedicated servers. When I asked for a specific type of Sake, both the server and Chef took time to look it up, (they did not have it, which is OK) Food was slow in coming and server was apologetic about this. Understandable in this times so not holding it against the restaurant that was taking care of to go orders in addition to sit in.

One of the best and innovative Japanese restaurants in the Denver area.

Good food, cocktails were just average, but the pulsing ‘wanna be’ disco music is awful and needs to be revisited

Third time here . I’m from NY visiting a friend and this place is always a must-do. The food is unreal and the service and ambience are wonderful! I recommend the honey eggplant app, crispy tuna roll, and the Mizu roll.

Americanized sushi, huge pieces. Two of the three rolls doused in brown, thick, salty sauce. If "crab" isn't real crab, it should be noted on the menu - I should have asked if it was real crab, but it was almost pureed fake crab with that weird flavor.

The food was excellent. I was a bit disappointed of our servers lack of personality and knowledge of the menu. We asked him for several recommendations and he could not really give a straight answer. The food was so tasty though. We had the lobster roll and various other rolls. I would definitely go back for more sushi!!

We ventured into the wrong side of the menu with trying something different than Sushi and got the beef rice and noodle dish! Not a good choice, and we’re going to stick with the best sushi in town in the future! The rice was very greasy and nearly any beef in it, so they gave me a side of beef, but still was way too greasy! My dog loved her dinner last night 😂
The place is awesome though, Sticking to Sushi all the way !

Not as fancy as you’d think from the price point. The fish was fresh, but there were errors in execution, most notably the wagyu nigiri that was cold throughout, blowtorched to a point of acrid flavor, and over salted. The rice was mushy and under seasoned. Bit of a disappointing anniversary dinner.
