This place has great sushi and other dishes. Every time I come to Monterey I grab dinner here. The staff is friendly and the Sushi is great! I ate here 2 out of 3 dinners while I was in town. It is a must go!

We had bento box lunch. Had good selections on the menu and had special off menu items for October. Sashimi was excellent and is my favorite at Japanese restaurants. Wait staff was great and super fast. Good value for the money.

Great sushi and the staff was also very nice. The fatty tuna melted in our mouth. It was so good for dinner that we went back for lunch before leaving town.

Increible! Calidad-precio super recomendable. Sishar, un camarero nepalí genial. Todo lo ofrecido, buenísimo. Volveríamos 100.000 veces. Unforgettable! Price-quality advisable. Sishar, a waiter coming from Nepal, very friendly. Everything he offered was very tasty. We would come again 100.000 times.

I thought I'd never be able to eat good sushi again after leaving Los Angeles. I don't know why I didn't know about this place sooner. It was fantastic. The sushi was fresh, the menu was extensive, and the service was on point. I can...More
