This place knows how to exploit sushi’s sex appeal while maintaining a low-key vibe. Curvaceous morsels of tuna, yellowtail, salmon and more are served in a sultry dining room full of slick minimalist furniture and tableware. The focus is great-quality raw fish, but a few liberties are taken, and with success. Ceviche maki pairs lime-marinated scallop with mango, cilantro and jalapeño, and salmon gets stuffed in a spring roll, fried and served with green curry dipping sauce.

Let me preface this by saying that I am not a fan of sushi, so this review might not be very helpful for you. But I really loved their chicken teriyaki and their spicy miso soup is so great! The staff was so helpful and friendly as well!


I came here for a group dinner yesterday. For six people, they allowed 3 bottles of wine. Overall, the service was quite slow, but our waitress was very nice. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very standard. Maybe a bit too dark for my liking. 

The spicy miso soup was very spicy. We could have gone without the tropical ceviche. We also did the sashimi plate. I think the sashimi plate was a good value.

Unfortunately, one of my friends has Celiac disease and actually got sick from the sushi despite letting the waitress know beforehand.
