Start with an assortment of appetizers like the Negima, grilled Rib Eye rolls stuffed with scallion an drizzled with Teriyaki sauce, Carpaccio made with Sea bass and served with homemade spicy ponzu, jalapeno and cilantro, or try the peppercorn tuna salad made with tuna sashimi over fresh mixed salad topped with wasabi mayo and eel sauce.
Sushi, sashimi and maki stick to the traditional side, served simply and with a focus on high quality fish.
