    Pre-Covid, the somewhat crowded tables and low ceiling made for a noisy atmosphere. Now, with fewer tables and fabric-covered partitions, the environment is lovely. The food and service remain exceptional!

    The sushi is always extremely fresh and delicious; the sushi and sashimi combinations never disappoint. They do not offer many interesting rolls, because the quality of their fish shines without needing any adornment.

    Great quality and value for the price point! We ordered the sushi deluxe, Miyabi, and mini Omakase, and we highly recommend all of them. The menu has a wide variety of food options if you don’t enjoy raw fish. This is a great place for casual dining/date night and to grab a quick lunch. Do make a reservation b/c it does get busy during dinner.

    Outstanding sushi. Outstanding shumai. Gyoza over fried. Delicious dessert (lady m crepe). Service was solid. Not leave you smiling good but attentive and efficient. Definitely a high quality go-to at decent prices. The barriers between tables are only as wide as the table and seem like they’re sound barriers but they don’t separate you from the person next to you so if that person is a loud talker, you’re stuck. Would be great if they were between people, not just the tables Still highly recommend.
