Reluctant to share but this place is an experience

First off, if you are considering going, don't dilly dally- make a reservation. There are 3 seatings and certain rules/expectations. All is explained when you reserve and you really should as there are only 10 seats huddles round the counter while you watch the chef dazzle. There is no soy sauce, alcohol, rolls.

You can order à la carte but the omakase menus are the way to go. We tried both the $40 and $60 menu delight. All sushi is prepared right in front of your eyes and there is a process. Chef brings out the pieces of fish in a certain order to allow for room temperature and then the magic happens.

He slices the fish with such skill that there are no knife marks in the 'chopping' board. The rice is prepared authentically you can essentially taste each grain. The sauces and condiments are added to perfection - nothing else is needed. His wife is on hand at the start to take your order, provide hot hot tea (yay) and at the end when you get your bill. It's a very tight knit operation that flows well.

I would say that if you have time, go for dessert - a little something is needed to round off the meal.

Newly opened authentic Japanese restaurant (Japanese chef with many many years experience).

This is one for the true sushi/sashimi aficionados out there. Click on the link for their facebook or twitter as they have some great pics of what they offer and continuous updates on which seasonal/special fish they have currently have available.
