My secret place for quiet food, nice service and excellent food. The sushi is so very well prepared, and setting calm. Small place, can get busy, especially at night. Enjoy!

I loved this place; my husband felt a little cramped. It isn't big and the design feels authentically Japanese. We ordered several dishes: I can't say I have had more thoughtfully prepared Japanese food. I left feeling very satisfied. Their shtick is the tofu: we...More

A tiny venue, sparsely decorated hides fantastic food. Everyone has said it, but I'd heartily recommend the fresh tofu- exquisite! The only complaint was the dodgy vibe given off by the owner/head chef... In contrast to his staff he was stern and unwelcoming. I'd like...More
