I've been eating here more than 25 years. I can't add much to what Zagat and the New York Times have said about this place. This is the best sushi in central Jersey. It should be better known, but is tucked away on a side...More

This is a modest facility in a hidden corner of Somerville that serves the very best sushi, sashimi and other Japanese dishes. An overlooked treasure, and very highly recommended.
