At first glance, I was a bit nervous. The ambiance is interesting. It almost reminds me of a middle school play theater set. It's dark with red curtains offsetting a little nook in back. It is rather dark in there, not sure if that's to set the mood or hide some imperfections somewhere.

When I arrived to meet my friend, there was no one else in the entire place except the guy rolling the sushi and the server who I imagine is also the owner. He was extremely attentive. Perhaps a bit too attentive, but who can blame him when we're the only ones in there. He came by twice because he said we called him over; which wasn't the case at all. A little odd, but it could be worse.

I had the seaweed salad. Very yummy. My friend had the cucumber salad and it was like nothing I've ever seen. It was a glob of panko crumbs over a pile of something that may have included cucumbers and doused in a spicy mayo. It tasted good, but not at all what I was expecting. I had two rolls that were tasty but average. I wouldn't run out to return here, but with another groupon sure I'd come back.
