This small (family/friend) owned restuarant is kind of tucked away but if you find it like my family and I were recently lucky enough to, you will NOT be disapointed!
The food is amazing to start, my favorites are the Gomae roll, 101 house salad and the tariyaki!!
Being a vagatarian but also Japanese cuisine lover I really appreciate all the delicious options that are avialable for me :) My family however love sushi and they rave about the Snoopy roll and the sashimi.
Very fresh and always beautifully presented, a feast for the eyes as well as the palatte!!
You can tell the chef is passionate about serving good, healthy and fresh food and is very creative and innovative with the presentation of it!
The 2 waitresses at the restuarant are very charming and friendly. My husband and I weresuprised (pleasantly) when they recognized me on my 3rd visit and remembered that I was a vegatarian, eventhough I never told them I was, just simply ordered non-seafood or meat dishes?!
The decor of the restuarant is casual and kind of funky, with interesting pictures, quotes and items displayed. Also the wall of pictures (friends or guests?) at the entrance gives you kind of a "welcome to the family" sort of feeling right away when you walk in.
Overall my husband, daughter and I find the overall dining experience great and when we get a craving for sushi we always opt to drive to Sushi Shelter despite having 2 other pretty good sushi restuarants within walking distance of our house.
