Seven of us had enough food for ten, but we ate it all anyway. The meat on skewers was especially good, but all of it was very palatable.

What a dinner ! Here you get so many delicious options to chose. So it is the perfect place to go with friends order a lot of food and share everything. Id definitely come back - the meat was so soft and the sushi was one of the best I've ever eaten.

Nice atmosphere, great waitress and good food. You really can't ask for more. The dessert was a little flat - Green tea Creme Brulee. We were pleasantly surprised by the sashimi and some of the small plates.

This place makes some authentic Japanese food, and it's amazing. Recently coming back from Japan on vacation I've found it really hard to find good places, and now we've finally found one!

I ate dinner at the sushi bar, which interestingly isn't a classic sushi bar where you can order from the chefs. A very attentive. experienced waitress took my order. She made many suggestions and I felt a little pressure to make a decision quickly. The restaurant is loud even though it was relatively early in the evening. The regular bar... More

We were visiting friends in Orinda during a holiday in San Francisco. They took us to Walnut Creek and this gem of a restaurant. We weren't sure of what to expect, but as soon as we walked in the door, we knew we were in for a great experience. It's in a very old building that felt like an old... More

Went for an early Saturday dinner (5:30). Reservation was easy. We chose to sit in the outdoor patio area which had shade and a quiet relaxing ambience. The service was very good & orders were delivered pretty quickly. Their sushi rolls were very large and excellent! Their plates (we had both of the salmons) were very tasty, but on the... More

The decor inside and out is worth checking out on its own. The service Jasmine provided was attentive and fun. We had the Omakase 50 for two and it was perfect! The dishes were beautifully presented and tasted amazing. This is on our "must" come back list. We sat on the patio which has been carefully decorated to create a... More
