This is a local Japanese restaurant and sushi bar. I would only recommend eating here if you can sit outside (they have heaters) and look at the large and gorgeous fire pit. The offerings are somewhat limited when it comes to non-sushi items and the...More

Just finished a family dinner here that was really terrible. Food was bad and service was worse. Chicken gyoza were perhaps the best dish (these were ok) and the sea food salad and the abalone were tied for the worst. Service was generally non-existent. The...More

If you are a big Dodgers fan, you must visit this restaurant because of their good ambience and great food. The sushi bar is decorated with so many Dodgers bubble head dolls, photos etc. I think they're big enthusiasts. Toshi, owner-chef is fun. There's a...More

Loved the atmosphere here! The outside fire pit is awesome. The sushi was pretty good especially the rolls. The service was pretty bad so it was a little frustrating experience by the end.

Was very disappointed with the quality and freshness of the very average sushi/sashimi we were served here, on the other hand the tempura shrimp were great! Loved sitting around the fire pit but felt that the restaurant lacked cohesion....rather like it's sushi!

I was there to celebrate a friends birthday. My friend told us to be there exactly at 5.15 so we can be the first at door when they open at 5.30. Although we had reservation, we wanted to get a seat around the fire place....More

what is there for a vegetarian in a fish restaurant? plenty. several tofu dishes and veggie gyoza. the variety of dishes for the rest of our group was fantastic. sadly, it rained and we could not enjoy sitting around the fire outside.
