The food is way below expectation. The service is great and welcoming.
There are a lot of dishes to choose from, but the display and taste are very so so. It is not close to fancy, just with some salad along with all dishes doesn’t make it nice. The sauce or the taste is on the heavy side. I wish they can just put the sauce on the spoon so we can choose how much we want. My first feeling is like eating in a airport. Paying decent food with a supreme price. The seating is not quite comfortable, the chair is not baby booster friendly. The high chair they provide was super beat up one from ikea. So I had to use my own booster seat which can not set up correctly due to the curve shape of the chair.
The service on the other hand is very good, almost meet up with the downtown Japanese restaurant. Also with a smile!!!

Suspicious at first as restaurant was empty but the food was spectacular. Fresh, high quality ingredients carefully prepared and presented. Excellent service as well. Will certainly return.

There was a large group near us who were behaving as if they were in a bar, doing shots and screeching. Being an open space, the noise filled the space and made it hard for us to talk. They also seemed to be the priority and it took well over an hour to get our food from when we ordered. They were aware and gave us free edamame and one large bottle of beer for six of us to share, but I doubt I’d return cause it wasn’t just one issue, but rather many. Too bad cause the food was pretty good. But there are enough other restaurants that serve similarly good food where I will get my food in a timely manner and be in a relaxed atmosphere where I can hear my own voice never mind the person across from me.

We’ve always like the food there. Service is excellent. But the over-hang window can use regular washing from the outside.

Fresh sashimi, tried chef’s aburi - fresh. Unagi donburi was good. Rolls were good - dragon, caterpillar. Bit pricier for the area but quality and taste are better

Great food, especially house rolls, but unfortunately poor service. Our water glasses were only filled on request. Had to always wave down a waiter.

Very enjoyed the vibes and decores. The food is not very traditional authentic Japanese sushi, it contains a bit too much sauce on top.

Food was delicious and well-priced. We went as a large group and the service was great. I would definitely go again. Get the Unagi Hitsumabushi!!!
