What a surprise, the place is packed on a Friday night. Good news is the wait is not too long and it is usually worth it, although when this busy parking can be a challenge.
We had the 360 rolls and mixed tempura. Very impressed with the tempura batter. Amazingly light and crispy. The tempura dipping sauce though is a bit thin on flavour.
The 360 rolls had a nice kick but looked a little sloppy in presentation. A sign of being busy maybe?
The on tap beer selection is limited. I wish they offered an IPA in addition to the Sapphora or Kieran.
They have a great offer that if you check in on Yelp and spend $40 you get a free dessert. They mean $40. Even with the place packed we couldn't get the freebie because we were a couple of dollars short. Not a biggie but just sayin'....

It was a so so night which surprised us. As always they do a great job looking after you and making sure your sauces are spicy enough. Awesome. The 360 rolls and the Fire Ants were okay. As stated the tuna seemed a bit mushy as did the rice. Not a lot of kick in either without the addition of some Hell Sauce. The Tempura cheese cake though was out of the park and moved the rating from a 3 to a 4 star. Once again, it was awesome :-)

I stopped in for a quick meal while on a business trip. I was pleasantly surprised to find so many Asian customers. (a good sign!) The place was busy (and noisy) but service was quick and very friendly. The sushi was well prepared but the fish was only ordinary. I am not complaining but the maguro was a light pink and the hamachi was only OK. I eat sushi often and while this was not bad, it was not on par with some of the high-end Japanese fish mongers. Still, it was good, even if it was not awesome.
