The DJ was great and the liquor is pretty cheap. Five bucks for a beer on tap on a saturday night is pretty good. Good place on a weekend.

Ooooops did I mention this was very pricey for what you get? Well it is. I know great Sushi and this place doesnt cut it. It truly misses the mark on all counts but ambiance, The wait service is S L O W and selective.

Great sushi and sashimi at this hip and friendly spot in the bustling Santana Row shopping complex. Dragon rolls, tuna and salmon tartar, oysters, etc -- all extremely fresh and tasty, with excellent presentation. Great for celebrating with a big group (though finding parking requires extraordinary patience!). Recommended!

This restaurant is well rated & on that basis we booked a table for 8.30pm. We arrived at 8pm which was no problem as the restaurant was almost empty. We ordered our food, which was really nice but then were asked if we needed anything else as the kitchen was closing st 9pm instead of 10pm. From then on we... More

Definitely great sushi. We enjoyed Pyramid of Tartar the most. The combination is very mouth watering. We also had Ritsu Rolls, Geisha rolls, and a few sushi. The fish were all nice and fresh. However, Tako Wasabi was good but nothing exciting.

We heard it was good, and yes it is. Different special selection of sushi dishes. Looks like it has an active bar scene too.

Had an excellent late lunch when the restaurant was relatively calm. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our server was excellent. The music was awesome too. Mostly 70s classics. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and will return the next time we are in town.

We have been here many times and just overlook the weird vibe because we love certain dishes (garlic edamame!) but the place could really use a make-over. I don't like the loud music, the dark interior, and TVs that now play news??? Strange combination.
