It was a full house so as our party of 5 was ordering, we were told it was going to take a while for the chef to accommodate our order. We ordered a few things off the cooked menu while we waited: vegetable tempura, soft shell crab karaage (pretty good but would only share with two other people), and broiled salmon belly. The broiled salmon belly is SOO GOOD and would recommend if you like the more common, broiled salmon collar. The texture just melts in your mouth.

We got a few orders of their otoro/fatty tuna (part of their special menu), tuna, yellowtail, salmon, sweet shrimp, eel, and uni. We were impressed with the texture and consistency of the fish here. The otoro did not disappoint and simply fell apart in your mouth. My second favorite was the eel but the salmon and sweet shrimp were also really exceptional. The fried shrimp heads that follow came out hot, crispy, but not greasy. The fish to rice portion is also good compared to the more Americanized Japanese restaurants here. The service was good considering how busy they are. One negative is only street parking in the area.
