I've had sushi before, but coming from Indiana, I guess I've just never had sushi so fresh and high quality. Just absolutely delicious! And fresh! I had the namesake "Awesome Roll" and the Tuna Sashimi Bowl. Even the wasabi was fresher than I've ever had. Small, informal space, but you have to try it sometime!

Both platters were generous portions and very fresh. Seaweed salad was a good starter. Kept the ice water and hot green tea full at all times. Good energy.

Really enjoyed this local sushi place during my trip to Long Beach visiting my son during his graduation from Cal State Long Beach. Staff was great, menu was excellent and price/value was excellent. Love this little sushi place!

This place is great the owner actually served us and the food was excellent. I had blue fin tuna that was great, and octopus that was sssoooo good. The oysters were some of the most memorable oysters I've ever had and I've had a lot. The rolls are so good and the home made creme brûlée was fantastic the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the service was great

I've been wanting to try this place for a long time based on the reviews. The experience didn't live up to the hype. From parking in an auto repair lot, to a menu that did not explain offerings very well, to sushi made with not-sushi rice... it was just okay. If you went purely by the menu, it looks like all their sushi is made with "spicy" ground fish. We ordered a lunch combo, which came with decent sashimi grade fish and a nice variety (picture on menu shows sea urchin which it did not come with...good for me as that's not my favorite). Having no Japanese influence at a sushi restaurant might explain some of the issues.
