This place is very nice and the food is good. Server was not very schooled on the menu or sushi so you will need to know what you like. Drink prices are very high.

My husband had udon soup (it was fishy and not my thing but he enjoyed it) and I had bento box C to share with the kiddos. The bento box was yummy but the shumai wasn’t my thing. The broth soup was awesome!
