I have to say that having just read the bottom two reviews, I'd have to write them off to being (at the time) a new restaurant. The place has been open for a year now.
And where has a year taken them? Overall, I'd say to a pretty good place.
First, let's talk about the food. It was excellent. My wife and I eat a LOT of sushi, and fairly frequently. And on the way home after dinner here, we decided that this place will be on our "must re-visit" list. Is this a place to go if you're looking for a posh fancy dining experience? No, it isn't. Want good sushi? Do it.
We ordered gyoza, miso soup, and a variety of rolls. The gyoza and miso were fairly standard, nothing out of the ordinary. At 5 pieces for $4.50, the gyoza weren't the best value proposition. And from there things took a steeply upwards. The rolls were: california, cucumber, tuna belly, eel, and something they call a tempura california roll. The california rolls use real crab, and they're well stuffed. The tuna rolls were sumptuous, and the tuna itself was clearly very fresh. Cucumber rolls were... well, cucumbery. The tempura california roll (a california roll coated in tempura batter and deep fried) was surprisingly non-greasy, and easily a pleasant surprise. My personal fave however was the eel (unagi) roll. The eel was arguably among the best I've ever had. It just melted in my mouth, and was quite flaky. I *heart* their unagi.
The place wasn't busy. A couple other tables, one or two pick ups while we were there. Mind you, this is a bedroom community, and we got there after 7. So not surprising that it was quiet. The service was great, possibly because of having all that free time. The server was polite, efficient, and non-intrusive while still being available.
The decor in the placee? Looked like it belonged in California during the eighties. A little dark, a little dated. But it wasn't bad enough to detract from the meal, and it certainly won't stop me from going there again.
