Was feeling stressed out so needed a girls night out in the middle of the week. My friend told me that she'd recently discovered a little gem of a sushi place, so we decided to check it out. What a gem it is!
I noticed right away that it was very clean and the layout was welcoming and warm. The server was friendly and we got seated right away. It did take a wee bit to get our menus and teas/waters, but it was actually fairly busy with quite a few walk-ins coming in from both doors and we were there around 6pm.
My friend warned me that the portion sizes were fairly large, but I didn't realize how large they were until they actually reached the table. There were three of us and we ordered a caterpillar roll, Osaka roll, combo #4 (a vegetarian roll combo), crunchy roll, miso, vegetable tempura, shrimp sunomono, and agedashi tofu. The agedashi wasn't advertised as spicy, but the waitress said that she'd make it spicy for me. What was also nice was realizing that they didn't charge me extra for it when I got the bill.
The food was very good. The miso, tempura, sunomono, and agedashi tofu were what one would typically expect, although I was pleasantly surprised with the portion size of the agedashi tofu. Normally for $4.50 you get four or five pieces. In this case, there must have been a dozen pieces of the average size and it was still nice and hot and crispy when it came to the table.
I think the total bill was around the $40, but we had enough to bring home for my very hungry hubby and for the next day as well.
I've since been back for take out for my sister-in-law's birthday and I will be back when I have another sushi craving. Well worth going to.
