Incredibly fresh and delicious...will never be able to go back to regular sushi again! We were lucky enough to be there to experience "ono", only on offer 4 times a year!

All vegan dishes were amazing. Great service, beautiful cool ambience. We hope Koji include a vegan dessert on the menu for next time!

The sushi was very high quality and tasted fantastic. Tried the veggie tempura and it was perfectly prepared. The setting is quiet since it's away from the main, chaotic road. Unfortunately it's cash only - a surprise and a hassle since we almost didn't have enough cash for the bill. And quite disappointed that 2 bottles of tap water cost... More

This was our favorite restaurant in North Santa Teresa but it moved to the South end of town. The new location is much bigger but has lost the intimacy of the earlier location. Koji is a master chef and when he is on his game there is no better place to find sushi. But service can be slow and finding... More

Simply put, the best sushi I have had in my life. However, it took us 4 days to locate the restaurant, because there is no sign. The service was friendly and tentative and the food was exceptional and not overpriced. The ambiance was also neat with outdoor seating and bistro lighting in the evening.

AMAZING sushi, great quality, and very fresh. The ambiance is beautiful. It is all outside with hundreds of white lights and candles. Very enjoyable dinner.

This was a real treat. Such good sushi. Not too many veggie options but what I had was really tasty and my friends praised all their different types of sushis. A little bit more of a high end restaurant but well worth it

The ambiance is great, the outdoor set up and candles are pretty. The menu is mainly tuna and shrimp. Service and food both take a very long time. Sushi was good but otherwise food was just ok. The banana flambé was amazing. House red wines were drinkable, but no better. Total before tip was $114. This included an unspecified 10%... More

I've been here twice for dinner. Delicious food, well-presented, both times. Great staff. Very buzzy atmosphere. Love it. And surprisingly for such good food, not expensive.
