Ambience description in 3 words:
Quiet. Spacious. Minimalist.
Salmon handroll: 9/10 super fresh salmon, not too “fishy”, crunchy seaweed, rice with flavor (some might say it overpowers the salmon)
Yellowtail: (I *love* yellowtail). Yellowtail was fantastic, love the slight wasabi flavor in the rice (not spicy). 10/10
Toro taku: Tuna was A+. Personally felt like there wasn’t enough pickled radish or green onion. Ratio of tuna to rice was a little off, but otherwise would order again (maybe ask for extra green onion). 8/10
Green tea mochi with whipped cream: By the time it came to me, it was a bit melty but the flavor was incredible. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Just like ice cream with the rice dough on the outside *chef’s kiss”. (disclaimer: restaurant gave this to me on the house, so automatically bumps it up to 10/10).
