Had some take away sushi from this place at around 7:00 pm. I believe after 6:00 pm, the prices on all pre handmade sushi drops by 50% which makes it a great bargain. The quality of the sushi is above average.

The lady behind the counter knows her stuff and made me the most delicious temaki (cone roll). Place doesn't have character but the sushi is good and service friendly. Prices are same as most large cities. Perhaps an improvement to the interior and exterior may...More

We regularly stop for the sushi here - very friendly and good range with all the favourites and some unusual options available with brown and white rice. The kids love the drawings all around the little shop and I love sitting at the counter looking...More
