Like many of the places on "the drive", they can look like a hole in the wall as you walk on by. This place doesn't really stand out on the outside, but once you sit down, and look through the menu and see what the other diners are eating, you'll notice that you've stumbled onto something very special. From the Daikon pinwheels with edamame centres, to little carrot butterflies over wasabi, you'll find that the sushi chefs take presentation very seriously. You eat with your eyes before your mouth, and your eyes should be ready for an amazing feast! But looks are only 1/2 the battle. The taste from each dish offers the same in terms as flavour as the visuals gave your eyes. The nasu dengaku (eggplant) was incredibly succulent with a delicious miso glaze that kept us coming back for more! The spicy agedashi tofu was wonderful, as was the OMG role, which did make us think OMG this is good. There was not a single thing that was poorly done. This will definitely become a regular place for us for when we wish to go for sushi.

I was excited to have a cajun/creole place nearby. I knew they served other stuff, but when a place usually advertises cajun or creole, you assume they know good flavours and will have a decent place. I couldn't be more wrong. The booth we were in had broken seat covers and the springs in the booth seats had seen better days. This would be a perfect place for Kitchen Makeover from Food Network.
I ordered the Jambalaya and what I got was rice sauced heavily in a somewhat spicy tomato sauce with stale green onions, chorizo sausage (should have been andouille!), thinly sliced chicken breast, and old fishy smelling and tasting shrimp, clams, and muscles. Blech! I just hope the old stale seafood doesn't poision me later tonight. My girlfriend ordered the gorgonzola pasta and her pasta was underdone, not aldente, but hard with absolutely no taste of gorgonzola at all. Was like an alfredo sauce you get in the bag at a grocery store.
I can see now why this place was quite empty when we walked in. I can see it being a good place for a few beers to watch some live entertainment, but stay away from the food if that's what you are looking for.
