The sushi lunch with 6 pieces of nigiri and tuna roll was reasonably priced. I also had an order of saba nigiri added to it. I'd halve to request no wasabi on the nigiri next time. It got too overwhelming for me.

My mom took me here for lunch when I went to work with her one day. It's just down the street from Visa's and Gilead's campuses. The place is tucked away in a plaza, which is good since there's a big lot. The prices for lunch aren't bad at all. I got a sushi lunch combo -- 6 pieces of mixed nigiri and a tuna roll. My mom got a chicken teriyaki bento box. Most of the lunch combos are under $9, which is a good deal for Japanese food in the Bay Area. The food was delicious, but our server was a bit off his game. Other servers came by to ask us how we were doing when they saw my mom and me looking around the room with empty plates. They had to track our server down to get our bill, oy.

The lunch time crowd on weekdays, as you might guess, is the business crowd. Great spot for a business lunch or casual lunch with coworkers/friends. Down some sake before heading back to the office to make the work more bearable ;)

The interior is decorated in a Japanese style with light-colored wooden beams. We were seated at a regular table, but my mom said that her work group has sat in the tatami rooms on the other side of the restaurant before. I'd like to sit at the bar next time and watch the sushi chefs work! There's a fish tank behind them that's flush with the wall too.

Great Sushi. Tasty and fresh and very casual. It can get pretty busy on fridays so make sure you either make a reservation or go after 8pm when things start to slow down. Overall a great place to have some sushi with japanese beer.

I have to say that it took me a while, but I believe I found my new favorite sushi restaurant. My husband and I love nigiris and rolls, and they have a lot of great options from you to choose from. From the classic tuna and salmon nigiri to several creative and tasty rolls, they have a really good selection.

This is what we tried:
Nigiri: maguro, sake fresh, tuna tataki and white tuna
Rolls: alaskan, california, salmon skin, and their famous firecracker
Everything was fresh and really good, totally recommend.

The place is simple and cozy, nothing fancy. A restaurant to all sorts of people and occasions: couples, families, friends and everything else.

The service is good (but they could be a little bit faster bringing the check), parking is easy and the prices are good too, which makes the place even better.
