This neighborhood spot underwent a face-lift to get rid of tangerine walls, industrial carpeting, a low drop ceiling and the unsettling walk through the kitchen to reach the restroom. Now, there’s a giant space (it expanded into the next-door storefront) with soaring ceilings, eclectic artwork, a new “kushi bar” (skewered meats and veggies) and, thankfully, the same great sushi. Still reliably delicious are the fresh and crunchy dragon roll and the spicy sweet potato maki.

This dimly lit BYOB is a popular sushi spot with a real neighborhood feel. I've only been on Monday nights where it's all-you-can-eat for $20. The all-you-can-eat menu includes soups, apps, makis, and a wide variety of rolls including a few special roll options. Be careful not to order more than you can eat. They will charge you for food left on your plate.

The plate presentations are always beautifully displayed. Between the Monday deal and the nominal corkage fee, it's a great value for good quality sushi. I believe they also advertise with coupons quite a bit; although they aren't accepted for the Monday night special.

A word to the wise is to be cautious with your alcohol consumption here. They tend to project some very avant-garde videos on the wall; which can have you feeling like you've landed somewhere in Alice's Wonderland. Don't get me wrong, that can be fun but it can also be a recipe for the spins and getting sick after sushi is a real downer!
