The food, the menu and the service.... I think we ordered almost everything on the menu. We were not disappointed. Would like to have seen the bento box come out as a bento box, not on separate dishes. More fun that way.

We went for our anniversary and both food and service were outstanding. They gave us a welcome drink as well as free dessert to help us celebrate. Highly recommend trying both their Hamachi Serrano Chili Roll AND the Filet on Robata grill.

The quality of the sashimi is absolutely first rate however, the killer differentiation is the real wood fire grill and Asian sauces. The filet was perfectly grilled with an amazing fire grilled flavor. The salmon was melt in your mouth. The decor, vibe and service...More
