After hearing how cool this place was the first floor was run down, lacking vibes and looked not it’s best - but I was still excited. We ordered drinks and the drink that arrived wasn’t matching what the menu said so they server did take it back but seemed reluctant. No problem as we did get another. The next drink was $15 for the smallest cocktail glass k have ever seen in my life. It was the spicy mango drink and it was almost completely tequila and no spice and no mango flavoring. The skewers were all solid and well priced. The chicken teriyaki was not great - it had white and dark meat after I asked three times about white meat - it was a bit dry and there was hardly any sauce on it, the salad had a drizzle of dressing but mostly was dry and the presentation was awful. The white rice for my friend was moist and perfect but my white rice was hard in spots, clumpy and not good. To make up for the lack of sauce on the chicken and the dryness of the chicken and rice I asked for more sauce and was charged $1 for something that should have come right in the first place. The server was nice but most questions we asked he didn’t seem to know the menu and had to ask for answers and only seemed half sure of the answers. He may have been new? In general this was such a disappointing experience for a place I heard so much about and it honestly was one of worst meals I have had during the entire pandemic. And it was only compounded with a slap in face of being charged extra for sauce that should have been included in the first place. Maybe they were having a bad day and maybe I’ll try again but not anytime soon. And the vibe and run down first floor isn’t making me want to run back.

The drinks and food were delicious. We spent a LONG time at the table and never felt rushed. ( the drinks counties to flow after dinner) good music and interior. Bathroom situation left something to be desired, but I wasn’t there for the bathroom, so…

I'd expect to pay $18 for rolls with lobster, but that was not the case. And a ton of imitation crab, which we omitted.

When we got there, we were the only few people which was amazing. Was only loud due to music which we didn’t mind at all, seeing it is a karaoke bar as well. Everyone was extremely nice, we were greeted and sat immediately and the food came out so quick! The portions were a little smaller which was great for us, but stating for others to know. As we left, everyone bid us goodbye so overall it had a great atmosphere.

Our drinks we made incorrectly (although, the wine pour is very generous). Additionally, the sushi is very basic. I would not recommend if you’re trying to have a good sushi night.

The rolls were tiny, poorly constructed & contained very little fish. Certainly lazy, maybe they are under hard times and cutting costs by serving, at best, mediocre sushi. Hard to say. Definitely look elsewhere.
