As we have a group of 7 person, we need to call and book advance to get a table. The food price is reasonable and the portion is good too. I have sashimi with rice and it is fresh. The staff here is friendly.

Everything is prepared once ordered, so don't expect a quick meal. That said, the sushi is exquisite. Well prepared, fresh, and creatively presented. It's a small restaurant and reservations are recommended in season.
