    This was VERY disappointing. The food was not good, over sauced, under flavored and seemingly poor quality meat. It was also INCREDIBLY loud, difficult to speak with my table..

    Not really worth the tab. The sushi was meh and when we explained we needed gluten free it felt like we received the lowest level of customer service and experience. I wouldn’t recommend this establishment as a spot for sushi in denver. Sushi Sasa down the street is 100% better and the same price.

    We had our 1 year anniversary dinner here last night and couldn’t have imagined a better place to celebrate! Our server came to the table with a celebratory glass of Prosecco for us to enjoy, the food was absolutely incredible! I wish we lived here in town because this would be our regular date night spot. Amazing service and unbelievable food

    Absolutely delicious meal. Hamachi Jalapeno Sashimi was one of the best things I've ever eaten here in Denver. Rolls left a lot to be desired in my opinion and I wouldn't order any of them again, but the sashimi and nigiri were top-notch.

    Tonlotsu and kimchi ramen were both fantastic. The sushi, however, was disappointing, pretty average. The wasabi was oddly lacking heat, not fresh? The menu is too large! Their daily specials menu was larger than many main menus. The service was erratic. Our primary waiter didn’t know the menu, and was evidently relieved half way through (for staffing reasons?), and we were largely ignored after that. Very loud—loud music even in the patio. Would probably go back but only for the ramen.

    Food and presentation was great a little bit expensive but worth it for a special occasion we loved the atmosphere and ambiance we sat on the patio it was comfortable with the heat lamps. I did mention in advance during my reservation that we were there to celebrate my son's birthday and it was a special one, no one even mention anything so that was very disappointing I didn't want to have to ask the server in front on my son but said something to the busser he said he'll let our server know again nothing so I just let it go but it definitely took away from the experience you should really work on a better communication process.

    We had reservations and were sat as soon as we arrived. Waitress was great got us water let us know are drinks we delayed from changing of the keg. They were very busy and it took over an hour for us to get any food. The Waitress again was great brought us a free hot app so we atleast had food. Overall it was great but it was a very long wait for our meal. We will be back the amazing Waitress made the wait not such a big deal.

    We ordered everything on the specials list including the oysters, toro, uni, salmon belly etc. Nothing was fresh. Everything seared was almost cooked through. The oysters were inedible fishy and when I told the server this (I’m never one to complain ever but I literally couldn’t eat them I thought I would get sick) he said it was “typical” for west Coast oysters. He was very kind and attentive to my dietary restrictions I will note,

    The reviews spoke highly of the sushi but this was Tuesday night (ie delivery of fish day), ordered only the special sushi from Japan (except the uni) and it was barely mediocre fish. It was like a Hapa sushi quality just much more expensive. Would never go back for sushi. The people sitting next yo us ordered Bao buns only. They were the smart ones.

    I went to dinner with another person and we got several appetizers. All of them were delicious! The wings were by far the best I've had since moving to Denver. The nigiri; salmon, hamachi, and toro were excellent! The 2 specialty rolls I got were just okay. I was disappointed in the baked one with lobster lagostino roll. I had a lychee martini which was good but tasted more like a lemon drop, I still enjoyed it as I love lemon drops. I saw a firey drink at another table and asked my served about it, took 2 sips, and didn't like it. I left it to the side for the rest of the evening. Overall, I enjoyed my birthday dinner. I would suggest more of a date night place because of how loud it is.
