The food was delicious. The noisy and crowded environment in the restaurant would not bring us back however. My husband couldn’t even hear what I was saying the majority of our meal.

My family is addicted to sushi. This restaurant has fresh, tasty sushi. My problem is that also is relatively "fancy," with wine glasses on the tables, lots of silverware, etc. So basically we paid a good 15-20% more than the sushi was worth just for...More
