Cool decor What I love was that they used gobo in their rolls A lot of sushi places don't use this ingredient anymore and I miss it Gives the rolls some additional crunch and texture Staff was very nice and attentive Rolls were tasty

We went there late probably around 1030 It is super dark and there are fog machines and disco lights I guess that would be cool for a night club but not a restaurant

While the food that was prepared was done in a manner that I would eat from that Chef, but as far as the service our waiter never introduced himself, incorrectly brought us our sushi order. He told us it was one order when it was not the correct order. My wife order two sushi rolls and i ordered one. The two she ordered came out first in which we both ate one thinking is was the one I ordered and one of the ones she ordered. When the correct order was prepared for me he brought it to the table and let us know that he had gotten the two mixed up. While we had already eaten the other sushi that had come to the table he only asked did we want him to order us another of what we had just ate. Meaning it would have been something we would have had to pay for. The only other comment after that was well let me know if you change your mind since we said no we don't want to wait for another 15 minutes for your mistake. Also asked us if we were still upset with the mix up and when our response was yes he just turned and walked away. We were finish with our order for a while and he never returned with the check for us to pay and leave. I simply just went to the front and asked for the check that he had to ring up twice because he rang us up for another bill. It was at that point I said not even the manager was going to make this any better. So with that we paid and left.
