The wife and I stopped by last weekend for dinner and we are probably the only people who have not done the AYCE option. We decided to go a la carte. Neither one of us were in the mood for rice so she ordered some edamame and tuna sashimi. The edamame was blah but the tuna was fabulous. 3 huge cuts of fish that were so rich in color and soft and buttery in texture.
I got the sashimi dinner ($17.95), which came with miso soup (very good) and salad (nice, crisp lettuce with a peanut sauce drizzled on top). The sashimi consisted of 5 different types of fish, each with 3 generous slices. And by generous, I’m talking about half an inch thick. The tuna was clearly the best of the bunch, with the yellowtail not far behind. The salmon was also delicious and the white fish was decent. But the disappointment of the night was the albacore. It had a weird after-taste to it. The dinner also came with 2 pieces of crab. Before I ordered I wasn’t sure if the dinner would fill me up but it turned out to be plenty of food. I didn’t even have room to try the strawberry mochi.
The service was a little spotty. It took a while to get our drinks and they forgot the edamame, so we had to remind them. Then after we finished eating we waited and waited and finally had to flag someone down to bring the check. But, the fish is good enough to warrant a return visit.
