My gf wanted to bring her dad for a belated birthday dinner before he had to fly back to work, so with her family, a friend and I in tow we decided to come here on part of the great reviews. It did not disappoint.
The space inside looked and felt cramped but was spacious enough. It's quite casual all around as there were many children in attendance, but luckily the food was anything but casually prepared.
We came out with a hefty bill after sifting through the menu and merely pointing at dishes to order. In the end, sashimi, nigiri, rolls, cooked items and even dessert was to be had. They have a superior starting point in the sushi rice. Every grain is identifiable without being undercooked while a mild linger of wasabi touched the background. It easily fell apart while still holding it's shape. The use of fresh wild fish made a measurable difference, especially the toro, hotate and salmon belly, easily the best we've all had. We all enjoyed the simply made deep fried fish bones while the grilled cod and it's silky, delicate flesh was so expertly prepared we had to order it twice. Even the ordinary chicken karagge was a cut above the rest. Normally we balk at the dessert options available but the creme caramel spoke to us. The sweetness of the egg custard and the slightly burnt/smokey/bitter taste of the caramel was a wonderful counter balance of taste and was a light finish to an amazing meal. Dollar wise it's fantastic value given the fact that you'll get a lot less quality for the same price pretty much anywhere else.
Service appeared slow but was actually quite brisk. Servers introduced each dish as it came to the table while empty plates were removed with haste. Our only issue was trying to overhear their thick Japanese accents over the ambient noise.
Incredible quality at excellent prices I don't think you could find a comparable Japanese restaurant elsewhere in our city. Absolutely recommend.
