Food here is excellent and the presentation is a work of art! I am not big on raw fish, but it really is great food here. I wish I could tell you what we ate, but I was with a friend who said to let...More

If you want a true "knock-off-your-socks" experience try it. There is only one choice: small...75$ or large...more$...per person. Of course you need to be a tad adventurous, but the reward will be ecstasy! Make sure you sit at the counter. Enjoy
