Noisy children, people in tshirts and shorts, didn't even feel like I was in a Japanese restaurant. The food was still really good, but wasn't the experience I had remembered from prior visits, now it's just not special. My server was excellent and attended to everything with good timing the entire night. The mixed tempura was done perfectly, a nice assortment of veggies and seafood. The Wagyu on hot stone was incredible, man that was good. They were out of the matcha creme bruleee so I had a scoop of ice cream to end my birthday. Still great food, just not a great experience. Oh, and it's mandatory valet now and they left my car unlocked the whole time, not cool.

However, I was a little startled at the attire of some patrons as we continued to dined. The attire suggested on the site states business casual. We we’re dressed as such. It was disappointing to see patrons walking in with workout attire, sneakers and thigh high ripped shorts. I do believe dress code policies should be enforced especially when it’s clearly defined on the website

I will save the issues with timing and service because in the world we live in, it is to be expected. But the food!? Cold cooked frozen frozen generic gyoza. The edamame was oily, the sushi was just ok. Nothing special and the chefs special Wagyu was just an overcooked 80/20 burger! The pepper it was served in was filled with grease. Overall not worth the trip or the $180. Sad.

We are not connoisseurs of sushi and sashimi, so what we tried was limited. A Chef starter, with five different cuts of tuna, was excellent, as was the salad trio. After that it was tempura, all of which was very good. The lobster tail selection was cooked perfectly, with the lightest batter. Same for the soft-shelled crab. Just ice cream for dessert. We preferred the ginger over the green tea; the latter was good, but more of a bitter green tea flavor than I’m used to. Overall, it was a very nice experience. Unfortunately, getting there was much more difficult because of the road works. If you are traveling from the north side, you have Cheshire Bridge closed, and Piedmont Road a two-lane disaster. It took nearly an hour from Buckhead. After dinner the gridlock at the Monroe Drive entrance to I-85 had cleared, so that provided a faster return trip.

We went early and had reservations. We ordered the Take Ume sushi, drinks and shared the combination tempura shrimp and teriyaki chicken. We were stuffed. Drinks are strong but big for the 13 dollar price tag. Definitely be prepared to spend money. A nice night out.

Service was lacking this.visit. The chef specials were not well thought out or executed, seemed that they were there to offer inexpensive ingredients to optimize profit. Sushi is was excellent as usual.

Brandon, our waiter, was FABULOUS! Super attentive! Anticipated all of our needs. Very knowledgeable about the menu. Ambiance was cute and very clean. Food was very delicious and we were very happy. Gave 3 stars on the value just because we have had equally quality experiences at other places for a lower price. We would definitely go back though.

But it was certainly good and I enjoyed our dinner very much.
