We have been there three times. The first time the service and the food was great! However the third time, the service was extremely slow and ineffective. I think that the waitresses should have more training about how to service guests.

Sushi rice was hard and separated, some rice fell off after a careful bite, clearly not enough water while cooking. Even when eating the whole piece it felt that the fish and rice were completely separate. Rice is as important as the fish if not...More

I have to say the omakase I had was the best I ever had even in the country. The chefs are so sophisticated and the sushi were made just as the best they could be. It's definitely worth a try. And the prices are much...More

No, it isn't -- we usually order an appetizer or two, miso soup and then the Jyo sushi, which is enough food. The quality is outstanding. You won't be disappointed if you like quality sushi.
