What we each had was ok, but skimpy on the portions, especially for the price. Comparable to othe finer sushi establishments. Clean, friendly service, but not a place we will return to. My salmon sashimi was very fresh and delicious as well as the seaweed...More

I think the title says it all. There were four of us dining at this restaurant and every body felt that the food was marginal and the service was abysmal and slow. We will definitely not eat here again.

My second visit re-confirmed that quality fish can be found in the Tucson desert. I usually order the basics shashimi style and the quality of maguro, hamachi and sake were quite good. The special items such as aji or toro don't specify the price, nor...More

We are her last night for the first time. The food was very good. One of the owners is gluten intolerant and prepared my dish using her homemade gf sauce. We enjoyed it. Our server; Brittney explained all of the different dishes on the menu...More

First time visit, based in Trip Advisor and Yelp reviews. We decided the $50/2 people dinner would give us a good overview of all of their food. Miso soup = weak. Salad = green and ordinary. Appetizer spring rolls good. Sushi and sashimi = excellent....More
