Happy Customers

Been searching for a new sushi place since our last one closed due to the chef’s retirement. I love the quality of food here. The owners are kind and will take care of their regulars. Try their sushi to their ramen. I always order an appetizer too. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with majority of the menu.

Little hidden gem in Fremont! The chef is apparently from Japan. Service is friendly and food is great. Not very busy on the weekdays. The nigiri come with large pieces of fish and very little rice (I prefer a bit more rice actually). I highly recommend the unagi and salmon nigiri. Also try the Free Mason Roll, which has avocado and seaweed salad in the middle and albacore and salmon on top, an interesting combo I haven't tried elsewhere. Lastly, the katsu don is a good value because it comes with a miso soup and small salad. We finished with the matcha cheesecake, which was not impressive but a good way to end a satisfying meal.

Great food, with very good service! Thoroughly enjoyed the donburi that we got and the seaweed salad/tuna roll. The lychee ice cream was an amazing way to top off the meal!
