First, the positives: This is an authentic Japanese restaurant for people who appreciate authentic Japanese food and dining. Each dish is beautifully prepared and served in adorable little dishes or pots with matching little lids. Food is served a few small plates at a time...More

Let me begin by saying that this is not a traditional sushi/sashimi type of Japanese restaurant, although they do have both on the menu, it is not their focus. I also come out of this restaurant smelling of smoke (I suspect this is because of...More

This will be an odd sort of review. The food is extremely authentic and freshly prepared. But there is so little of it! And it costs so much! The server too was sweet and helpful, but refilled our glasses with water just once. There is...More

This restaurant is small and normally reservation only. They have a course menu, but I normally order from the menu. The yellowtail sashimi was $24 and others are between $8 and $25. It does not have regular sushi. The only one they have is tuna...More
