Foursquare Tips

  • #5 roll seems pretty basic but its outstanding!
  • Everything is amazing. My usual order is the spicy tuna roll, the #2, and the #7.
  • Best in quality and size at the most reasonable price compared to so many other overrated/priced places in the city. They're UNI is the love of my life!
  • The sushi is amazing and fresh always! Been coming for years. A little crammed and always a wait, but so worth it. Rolls are the size of your face so no first dates haha. Good bang for your buck!!
  • Everything is great!! Beef teriyaki was delicious and sushi was very fresh. Pieces are big
  • Doesn't matter what you get here - everything is excellent.
  • They don't take reservations. Plan on putting your name down then go across to Cibar for a drink. Spicy Tuna Inside Out #bestrolleva
  • Toro tartar is outta this world
  • The BEST green tea tempura ice cream
  • Sashimi is nice and thin, but big. Prob one of the better places that I've had sashimi at.
  • Crispy Shrimpy!
  • Hands down, some of the freshest fish I've ever had. Salmon sashimi is a must.
  • Get the #5 special roll! Mmmm... Spicy mayo!
  • Toro toro toro
  • CHECK IN NUMBER 40 hahaha. Shoot
  • Don't leave here without getting the Crispy Shrimpy roll. Seriously.
  • The BEST SUSHI that I have ever tasted!!
  • Everything is amazing but best spicy tuna in the city hands down.

  • The long line is worth it. Fresh sushi in no-frills setting. Share sushi deluxe with a friend.
