One of the best in Truckee for sure! My wife and I go for the rolls but their Udon bowls look great too and everything is super fresh. The atmosphere is great for a date or family meal, though it's not the cheapest place around....More

Just happened in because I was in a motel near by. Several people at the bay having a good time. Good sushi any varied options those who want their food cooked.

The food was very good but everything was expensive and there were a lot of waitresses hanging around and talking to each other (rather than waiting on tables).

Had the lunch special grilled chicken bento box. Comes with rice and a small salad plus a delicious miso soup. My friend had the calamari lunch special. She liked that too. Nice atmosphere and good service.
