    fish was not fresh. The sweet shrimp came out cooked and the scallop was dehydrated. Some of the pieces were half frozen. Interesting choice of using brown rice as the base for the pieces. The texture of the rice made it very noticeable and did not pair well with any of the fish. The tuna piece’s shokupan was powdery and also did not pair with the tuna. The toro piece was the worst toro I’ve ever had. Sticky and somewhat fishy. A sukiyaki place I used to frequent in nyc had better and fresher toro than this omakase place. If this is someone’s first omakase experience just know that this is way below par.

    Every dish of the omakase menu was exquisite. Superlative white eel. Only minor negative is that we were told we had to vacate the table after 90 minutes. Seemed a bit tacky when we were paying over $300 for 2 people Nonetheless I love this place

    Excellent sushi - exceptionally fresh. Attentive and friendly service. Great beverage selection. Highly recommend, though the omakase-only price probably makes it more appropriate for a date night, business dinner, or special occasion.
