Excellent service, great menu and really great food. I didn't have any sushi, turns out the Salmon Teriyaki was calling my name and that was a good thing since it was very tasty. Busy enough on a Wednesday night with locals, so that's a good sign in my book.

We ordered Sashimi dinner and Sushi & Sashimi dinner. It is well worth it. We have visited this restaurant every time we are in Halifax, and the chef has always been up and over my expectation making his food. There is a parking across the street which is very convenience.

I love their sushi pizza. It's always fresh and delicious. The service is good and it not usually too busy to be in and finished at lunch time.

Hands down, this place is by far the best sushi place in Halifax. The food is always super fresh and the staff, especially the chef, are some of the friendliest people ever.

This is a fantastic Japanese restaurant. As I understand it, the owner and his wife are Japanese and that is reflected in how good the food is. The ingredients he uses are incredibly fresh and locally sourced. Whenever I visit Halifax I make a point of visiting this restaurant. I have been to endless Japanese restaurants including ones in Japan... More

Stopped in here based on the reviews and the fact that our hotel was a block away. Sushi was very good, although rolls were a bit smaller than I'm used to. Service was average but such a small place not hard to get someone's attention when needed. Would go again.

So fresh! It is absolutely the best sushi my wife and I have ever had. The atmosphere is basic, the service is friendly, the chef is obviously an expert in his field. We'll be back next trip.

The chef's philosophy is really cool. Service was quite slow. The food was good, but nothing remarkable. Average price for sushi in Halifax.
