The food and service is good, but you pay for amazing. For what they charge you should expect to have the some of the best sushi of your life time, which unfortunately is not the case.

Beautiful, peaceful and calm space off Union Square. Sushi bar up front, sit down off to the side. Relaxed but attentive friendly service. I had a delicious mushroom soba with a piece of shrimp tempura and three makis. All were a grade and a level...More

Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
