    Food was really good! They've a separate menu for vegetarians which I loved. I had mapo dofu and chef's choice makimono - which was really tasty. Dessert- Honey toast was a bit too salty, liked chocolate candy bar.

    One of the best sushi meals we have had. Tried a few new things but wouldn’t have without the recommendations from our fantastic waiter. Everything was so good and 2 people in our group don’t eat sushi and they loved what they ordered

    Best sushi restaurant I’ve ever been to and it’s not even close. I got the chefs tastings (omikase) it wasn’t cheap ($284) but I was absolutely blown away Plenty of food for 2 people, served over 10 courses over the span of 2 hours. Everything they bring they tell you where it was caught and what it is, literally the best restaurant experience of my life. Can’t wait to go back, definitely a special place.

    Another nice experience except that I would have preferred to have been asked if a high top table was ok, as it was uncomfortable to not have my feet on the floor for a longer meal. Server was great as was the food.

    We went for the Chef's Tasting 10-course meal and had an amazing food tasting experience. The food was delectable and every dish that we had was full of flavor. It is in small servings so do not expect big plate but despite of that, each bite of the food was simply delicious. I would recommend the Hama Chili, Bluefin Tuna Crudo, and the Wagyu Striplion as my top 3

    This was the best dining experience I’ve ever had. Our server was so amazing. We told her what we like and to just order what she recommends. Every single thing she brought out was better than the last. My husband doesn’t even like raw fish and she managed to serve us things that even HE couldn’t believe how good they were. WELL worth the price. Such an incredible experience

    Pleasantly great food. Service is average. Feel the rush of the servant. Price at high side but great quality of food. Way too noisy for fine dining. But if you enjoy loud & chatty entertainment it’s your spot.
