Absolutely amazing. Possibly the best sushi I have ever had in my life.

If you're looking for an authentic Sushi experience, prepared and served by a master... this is the place. Portions are large - so one nigiri serving is really like two. The fish is fresh and deeeelicious and prices are fair for the portion size. Some of the best sushi I've had ever. The Salmon was bright and fresh, Yellowtail was like butter and the grilled Unagi was the best I've ever had, not some tiny piece covered in sauce but large, grilled to perfection and lightly sauced.

Great little sushi bar with izakaiya standards as well. Cute Japanese couple running the place. The Sumo they have on TV is not from the current tournament sadly but it's fun to see some of the guys who retired in the last couple years back on the dohyo. The sushi and sashimi pieces are big and fresh. The Age Dashi Tofu was good although the sauce was a little light. Nice quaint atmosphere, Hiroshige prints on the wall. If you live locally and want a "go-to sushi spot", you can't get more authentic than this!
