Nice place, decent sushi, and priced similarly to other restaurants on the Cookman restaurant row. It doesn't measure up to NYC's high standards, but for the Jersey shore, it is quite good and convenient. Good for families too.

Cute place - good inventive sushi rolls. Went for lunch, my first time there. Sushi roll was great, edamame appetizer was plentiful and service was perfect. I also liked the individual bathrooms for women. Would definitely go back. Outdoor seating is a plus.

This is good Japanese food. I've had better in Manhattan, but this is not Manhattan, and prices are cheaper for sure! You can also sit outside. Fairly good miso soup, salads are very good and fresh. Also had raw fish sashimi that was pretty good.
