    I would definitely go back but the last dish on the Omakase was just bad. Nothing Luxury Deluxe about it. Just rice with bunch of random seafood on it, felt very dry and almost no flavor. Everything else was delicious though.

    Food is great, service was awesome, portions were bad. The portions were like tapas and price was for a full meal. It is downtown but still, it was annoying to finish your food and still feel hungry that we end up ordering ramen in the end. I saw two other tables were re-ordering as well after ordering the first time. Can't have a dining limit if we have to order twice cuz the wait time is also significant. Expect the 'DIY' to be not so very hot stone, we had to replace it 3x so we can cook our wagyu.

    We went as a family, food selection was wide and staffs were friendly. Orders were taking a bit long and one of the food from our second round order was mistaken. Street parking was unavailable at the time but it did not affect our visit.

    Tasty food, relaxed vibes, and amazing service. The staff are always so friendly and high energy, and the food quality and value are top-notch. Their sashimi is fresh, and drinks are well made. Would recommend this place time and time again.

    The omakase was uni forward, as expected, and it included a fruity sake drink. Delicious and fresh, and super satisfying for an uni lover like me.

    The grand opening was fun to be apart of! Even though there weren’t any specials for the first day of opening, the selection was vast, the food was tasty, the service was attentive and the ambiance was welcoming. The uni (from BC) was decent too! The servers even lit a couple of sparklers in our dessert when they heard that we were secretly celebrating a special occasion. Will be coming back soon! :)
