We enjoyed the Sushi as well as the outdoor seating. The food was really good. You can watch the people making your sushi which is always fun. An Authentic experience.

Exhausted from the shopping crowds on Fore Street, we opted for dinner along the Old Port. A lovely respite, we shared a phenomenal sushi platter. Nice meal.

Enjoyed a great lunch here on a busy Saturday. Had the bento box special, it was really filling and tasty. Perfect for a hot summer day.

Had their lunch special today. A mix of sushi and sashimi plate. Ingredients are fresh and also had a taste of the local shipyard brew pale ale. Location is perfect along the wharf.
