Miniscule nigiri
Submitted Saturday, September 13, 2008 - 4:35pm [Dine in]

Don't go here if you're actually hungry. I ordered a $10 nigiri and sushi combo. When my food arrived, the nigiri were so small it was laughable, and the california roll didn't have any avocado - only a few tiny slivers of cucumber skin. On top of that, none of it tasted particularly good.

The only positive thing I can say about this restaurant is that the waitress was pleasant, the decor is inoffensive, and they were quick to refill my teacup. Overall, though, it was a disappointing waste of money, and I sure won't be back!

Loved it!

The menu is fabulously inventive - they've got your staples, but also an enormous selection of other breakfast items for when you're in the mood for more than the typical variations. It's busy, but that's part of the ambiance. And given how packed the place was, I was impressed at how attentive and efficient the service was. Can't wait to go back!

Some kinks to work out...

First, let me say - the chef's rolls were amazing: inventive, and the presentation was so gorgeous that we had a hard time eating them.

But the service was - well, weird. Hopefully it's just inexperience and will improve with time. Let me give you some examples: After we sat down and started perusing the menus, we were asked *four times* within the first five or ten minutes if we were ready to order yet - while we still had the menus open. Then, when I ordered one of their cocktails, the waitress *laughed* - long enough that I was left staring at her, wondering what was so funny - when she said, "the bartender isn't here tonight." Which was all she had to say in the first place. There are actually more examples, but in the interest of brevity, I'll leave it there.

And then the food didn't all arrive together. We had each ordered two rolls; my two rolls arrived first, and about 20 minutes later, my husband's first roll arrived, and another five minutes after that, his second roll arrived. It's a good thing we decided to share!

The ambiance is pretty, but I don't think I'll go back unless I can sit by the window; it's a little dark inside, and I bet it will be downright depressing in the winter.

All that having been said, though, it's nice to have a slightly more upscale sushi place on the Drive. I just hope the wait staff learns standard cues (like I'm ready to order when I close my menu, not before), or even the delicious sushi won't be worth it.
