Really good sushi for the price? Yes, it’s here… Make reservations if you plan on eating here on Friday night, it makes it a lot easier. Once you make that reservation, make sure you sit at the bar! Any questions you have can be answered by the sushi chefs, and if you describe what you want, they’ll make it for you too. I was seated with sushi chef Archy and just told him, omakase please. When you get your first order, you’ll be blown away by the size of the fish they give you, makes you feel like you’re getting “hooked” up. However, they do this for all their customers. This place is big on making sure the customers have a smile on their faces when you eat their sushi. How serious are they? The manager walks around and makes sure everything is tasting well, and if there is a problem they fix it right there on the spot.
The place is awesome! I give it 5/5. The service, quality, portions, and ambiance are amazing. I usually don’t like sitting at the bar, this is the first sushi place I’ve been too where I don’t mind at all because the service is fast. My hot tea was never cold nor empty and my food came without wondering if mine was next. The last sushi restaurant I went to, the fish barely covered the top of the rice. This place, you can barely see the rice, which is good because that means you can enjoy the flavor of the fish. I found my default sushi restaurant… Big thanks to chicknfeet for telling me about this place.
