I came here with a sushi club (basically a small groups of sushi loving friends who meet up once a month to try a different sushi place). At first I was a little taken aback by its name (sound like those bad Korean-owned chain sushi places like “Kabuki”, “SushiQ”…etc), but it’s actually an small, authentic and intimate place.
Because it was a work night, we arrived late at 8pm and many fishes were sold out already. They have a regular fish menu and a menu for imported fish from Japan by Air.
Oyster, and a special of the night: Uni with mirugai. Good!
The sushi was cut in a long stripe placed on top of a small amount of rice in the middle. It’s perfect for my hand to pick up and eat it with one bite.
Shima Aji (premium mackerel) was fantastic! Kohada was alright (I’ve had better).
Kanpachi, Zuke (marinated Tuna). All very good, though some people in the group weren’t that crazy about the continue used of ponzu sauce.
Madai (Japanese Red Snapper) and Sweet Shrimp. Most of the item we wanted to order ran out. So by this point we asked for omakase (half-omakase?).
The main chef wasn’t very conversational and all he ever did was saying “sushi sushi” when someone talked to him. Overall the sushi was very good but they’re quite pricey. Though My friend told me their omakase worths the price, but the key is: get there early! The chef said most fish supplies ran out by 7.
