The set menus and the Chef's menu are excellent and good values. It is great to go to a restaurant where you can tell them what your preferences are and they will modify a set menu to your taste. Highly recommended.

Even though the service wasn't the quickest and the waiters did not seem to be as attentive (maybe also because we sat outside and the place was full inside) we enjoyed our stay a lot! I had sushi which was really, really delicious. I would...More

Go with one of the set dinners; those are the best value for money. You can taste most of their specials that way too.

Had a very delicious dinner here. Very nice twist to sashimi with the Yellow Tail w/ Jalapéno. Enjoyed the Black Cod With Miso & Corn Tempura very much. Will certainly come back to try the rest of the foods.

This place is a gem in South Bay Area: best sushi I could find here (I've had better ones in LA, Hong Kong, [and of course] Japan). Price is surprisingly good too if you order carefully.

Small and there's a line of people waiting to eat, for good reason, it is truly excellent. If you like sushi and sometimes are unsure how fresh it is, come here as they take it to another level.

An average Japaneses restaurant - small and it does fill up so it is wise to make a reservation. The menu is varied, food is good, but not outstanding.
