I should have taken photos of all the dishes as they were presented...but they didn't last long.

My friend and I came here to have some really great food. I'd never been before but he had.

We started with gyoza (steamed dumplings) and their octopus Mediterranean (with basil oil, Parmesan, and sun dried tomato). AMAZING!!!

Next up was the soft shell crab tempura, a couple uni (sea urchin), tuna, and shrimp nigiri.

We didn't stop then. We tried a bunch of things from the menus.

We followed up with some beef tongue steak (medium) and some calamari. OH MY G-D.

This place is unreal.

It was nearly 10pm and it was PACKED.

I can't wait to come back here.

We really enjoyed every meal we ordered here. Their salads are amazing and rolls are very good. We also tried Japanese craft beer (Ginga Kogen) and love it. Would love to come back here again.

Saw some great reviews and decided to try it. Nice, large busy restaurant. Nice ambiance. Fast service. Very mediocre sushi but fairly priced. Great if you just have to eat sushi but nothing gourmet or exciting. Hostess needs a bit of training otherwise good service. Average. End of story.

Lovely food. All dishes were hot and nicely spiced. The Udon noodles and chicken fried rice excellent. Shrimp tempura great.
Blood sausages very tasty. The New York steak, very tender. Every dish was good. Edamame, should be skipped. Too little to pay 6.00 .
Gyoza great. A nice selection of dishes.
