    Brought my brother and family members for an Omakase experience and it was amazing. I am so glad to have discovered Sushi Yugen at this stage (5 weeks old) to be one of the firsts before it blows up and gets mobbed. I liked that the seating wasn’t dense - there was plenty of space between diners although I am sure they may have to increase density when it becomes popular. The little details such as the plates, bowls, spoons were all refined. The service was incredible. Our main server was so attentive that we didn’t realize he had picked up on the special occasion until my brother’s dessert came out with a candle and he was leading the entire bar in the birthday song. The Omakase was outstanding. The flavors were unlike any of my previous Omakase experiences - there was something in each course that I either haven’t seen or tasted before. Thanks, Sushi Yugen, for a great experience! My brother and family will always remember this special day and we will definitely be back.

    Delicious and super fresh fish. Creative and elegant presentation by very expert sushi chef. The desserts are excellent, we had a matcha custard served in exquisite pottery. The restaurant serves complimentary sake, waiting for a liquor license. It will be interesting to see their selection of sake in the future.

    Absolutely fantastic meal, the place is spotless, incredibly clean. If you come here I’d highly advise getting the omakase, or the grand tasting, both are incredible and worth the price. You sit right infront of the master and watch him craft 16 beautiful pieces of sushi with the finest ingredients. Fantastic meal and I will be returning again.

    Booked a reservation last night. Inside is beautiful with aesthetic table settings on both sushi bar and table. We ordered the full course Omakase menu (they call it grand tasting) and we were served by Toni San, the sushi head chef (if I don't hear it wrong). The course was amazing. Outstanding presentation from the apps and the nigiris I would say just perfect. There's not much toppings on the fish, just to make us taste the freshness of it and he told us it was Edomae style sushi. If you are looking for a traditional omakase, this place is recommended. They also have some kitchen apps and entrees. Service was great. Definitely will be back.

    Loved love the omakase and the dishes and sushi. Everything was top top notch freshness and quality and delicious flavors! The sushi rice was just perfectly cooked and seasoned. It is a really special place that soon when people find this will be a hard reservation to secure. Since I am writing this as an early discoverer, I hope I can get reservations when I have to have a fix, which just may be weekly when I am in town! MCH
