Came in for lunch, $9.95 for 2 rolls, salad or soup, sake and dessert. Service was fast. I hate feeling rushed on my lunch break, so it's always a relief when food comes fast. I might start bringing clients here for the happy hour.

I live near by and enjoy coming here once in a while during happy hours. They have some good specials and also the sushi is a pretty good value for the most part. The happy hour is every day until 9PM and drinks are half off.

I go here for lunch and the lobster salad is one of the most delightful dishes I've ever had. Very delicate, slightly crunchy, good portion. Perfect with a glass of plum wine. In warm weather, their back porch with umbrella-tables, is a quiet refuge.

  • No, I would not go back!

Food was definitely nothing amazing. I work near the area, and was looking for a good sushi place...still searching. Service was AWFUL, but well intentioned, definitely inexperienced. One of the 2 bathrooms was locked with no one in it. Even after someone REPEATEDLY told the waiter he was trying to unlock the wrong one (a customer was inside), he ignored. They definitely need to call a staff meeting to go over some basic ground rules about working in the restaurant industry. Try Citrus instead, even if you have to travel a bit more
