I had a 20$ dish with misu soup and various sushi and sashimi slices. Sashimi was very fresh and tasty. Sushi rolls were a bit thin, but overall was enough food. The service was a bit slow...

After a long day on airplanes, I needed a sashimi fix and wandered around Madison until I found this restaurant. Not a big fan of vinegar rice, so I order a selection of sashimi. I got a good selection, very fresh this night, and excellent...More
