This place is a must if you like fresh, good quality sushi. The place is simple , friendly and with good service. Overall prices are more than reasonable considering you are getting a good quality product. A personal favorite is the salmon skin hand roll

They have so many amazing rolls. The prices are reasonable. And you can sit at the bar and watch them make your sushi. I definitely would recommend coming to this place to either eat in or take out but the food is always amazing.
