  • Rating: 1.0 out of 5"Jul 15, 2014 · by Tai T. from YelpOverpriced sushi period! I'm asian and eaten every sushi in the Bay Area. Unless you want to be ripped off you would not eat here. Filet mignon pebbles on sticks for $10 bucks. Not even flavorful. Just dry kebob! Anything they post on yelp is for advertisement. It's not available for order. This is crappiest of the … Full review
  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jul 13, 2014 · by Lisa H. from YelpGreat restaurant in downtown San Carlos. I got the omakase -- very fresh fish. Toro is not to be missed. The kobe roll is tasty and unique. Husband and I were trying to go low carb, and this place has great options for that. Full review
  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jul 13, 2014 · by I Y. from YelpGood place, my first time.Service was great, but felt hurried.The food came out really fast.It's great to see how efficient they are with the courses. I think this place is great if you want a quick dinner.But if you want to entertain or meet up with someone, it's not a great place.Even our friend from SF said she felt like she just got there for dinner!

  • Rating: 4.0 out of 5"Jun 25, 2014 · by Anita L. from YelpThe first thought I had when I walked into this place was "wow, this is so beautiful." Definitely not your typical sushi restaurant. With the dim lights and the romantic ambience, it's a pretty good place to have date night. This place is a little on the pricier side, but everything was really good. The himachi sashimi … Full review
