Used to be good... Now the food is on par with the service, which is pretty bad for Japanese standards
This place is well hidden and gem! I really am glad I did pull over to eat this place. I had my clear broth soup, it was delivered from heaven. I am very anxious for my next round on maki rolls and mackerel sushi box from the check list. The price is generally very reasonable. The Mackerel Sushi Box was so delicious and do recommend you to experience this one and is not seen anywhere else. The quality on Wasabi is a premium. The rest rolls I have on my plate went very good. All pictures of menu, check list and my food are included on this review.
I don't consider myself a sushi snob, but it was immediately obvious when we ate here that all the other sushi I've had in my life wasn't as good. And this was affordable - rolls were cheaper than other places I've had in the area. The miso soup was also exceptionally tasty. Would give 6/5 stars if I could.
Had extremely high hopes based on the rave, rave reviews on Yelp.
Service is definitely substandard. No dedicated host, just a self-check-in list. About an hour wait on a Friday night because the restaurant is very small. Limited interaction with the server, no menu explanation or assistance whatsoever, took forever to place the order. The menu is not clear, and it seemed there were items available that were not on the menu, like onigiri, which we saw delivered to other tables.
The hot tea was delivered in plastic cups, which was an unappealing presentation. The sushi was good but nothing special, and the rolls were small (albeit a good price for the portions).
I'll be the first to admit; this was my first time trying udon. I found it to be so bland, and I'm trying to understand how it could have missed the mark for me so completely, but is so clearly delicious to so many other people. It seriously tasted like slightly salty water to me. Is this just how udon tastes?
I desperately wanted this place to blow my mind, but I didn't get the hype, at all.
