We didn’t just have the sushi, we worked our way through just about every dish on the menu and to be blunt... we couldn’t fault one of them. Suffice it to say we will make this venue a regular dinner spot for us.

Unpretentious reasonably priced and BYO. Freshly prepared dishes and pleasant staff. This small eatery could give most of the A List Japanese restaurants a run for their money at a quarter of the cost. Never been disappointed.
