    Everything about my dining experience was great! The moment you walk in you get the vibe as you walk up the stairs. It’s very dimly lit and all blacked out absolutely in love! So simplistic yet sophisticated! The fish was very fresh and the presentation definitely delivered! Alcoholic beverages were fantastic and consistent each round! (Try the lychee martini) service was fantastic as well! 10/10 would highly recommend we will be back!!

    Great food but the prices are definitely on the high side. Quality of the food was very good as was the service. However, the bill for two of us was almost &250 with just one alcoholic drink.

    We dined here for our wedding anniversary and overall had a good experience but nothing special. The ambiance was ok although we found it darker inside than expected. The staff were nice and respectful but nothing that made me want to return. No acknowledgement of the anniversary even though was mentioned during the visit. Sushi was good overall especially the premier uni but this is expected since the price is on the higher side. We also ordered the hamachi kama which was decent. We have had better elsewhere but it was a good size so we were very full afterwards. Service as we mentioned was fine but was not up to expectations. We have had better attentive service at other sushi places without the fanfare here. We waited 25 minutes for someone to come by so we could request the check. In all honesty we wont be back since overall experience was not that good even if the food is good. However, if its a date night and you like a very dark ambience with decent food, albeit pricey then by all means try it out.

    Amazing quality! Our host in front (her 1st day) and our server Chris were the best. We ordered the Toro Sashimi, wagyu shishito roll, black miso cod, tacos crudos and all were on point. Will be back to choose different items next time!

    The hype has settled down .. overall a great sushi restaurant to dine at, at Pasadena .. we started with multiple apps and mock tails “as they do not have a full alcohol license so the drinks are on the lite side .. presentation was spot on .. After we order multiple rolls sashimi’s and Nigiri Great quality!!!! Fresh and flavorful… we asked for a dessert menu .. Would recommend more dessert options as they only had one cheese cake to offer that night but was not a deal breaker .. Will definitely come back !!

    Such a fun place for a girl's night out. The ambiance was perfect and it wasn't overly crowded so I could easily carry out conversation with my friends. The food was so SO delicious and the presentation was everything. I highly recommend the oysters if you are into that sort of thing.

    The food and service were lovely even though they were understaffed. The place was way too dark for dining and the black drapes made it claustrophobic. Urge venue and location is beautiful , if they either open the drapes or eliminate them it will bring out the beauty of the brick structure and make it much more elegant.

    Had higher hopes for this place but it definitely falls into the trap of “white people sushi” which means over-sauced dishes where you can’t even taste the fish anymore, listing “premium” ingredients on the menu but putting the bare minimum of each into each dish, and overall everything just tasting mediocre. The decor is alright. It looks cooler in the photos but definitely not as nice in person. I ordered an old-fashioned (first thing listed on the cocktails list) and it came super sweet and tasting like cough syrup. Bad start. Continuing to look at the menu will reveal overly inflated prices typical of trendy “sushi” spots but completely lacking the atmosphere, food quality/taste and portion sizes to justify those ridiculous prices. Uni pasta “with uni infused cream” was $42 and came with 4 tiny pieces of uni on basically what was an over-creamed carbonara with no uni in the cream. This place will probably close down soon when people realize it’s a waste of money and the food and atmosphere sucks.

    I have been here many times and it’s always been a great experience, and this time would’ve been as well if I wasn’t charged twice for my meal. I gave the waiter my card and he claimed that it was declined. I was surprised because this card has a huge limit and I was positive it was a mistake. I immediately looked at my online banking and saw it went through but just to verify I called my bank as well and they also said it was approved and went through. I informed the waiter and he claimed that it wasn’t accurate and that it was never charged so I needed to give another card, so I did. And he told me that if for some reason it did go through to contact them and they would immediately take care of it. A couple of days later I saw that not only did both charges go through but they also took it upon themselves to add a tip to the one that was supposedly declined. I immediately contacted them, told them the situation and they informed me to send an email with banking screenshots and the receipts and that they will take care of it right away. A week and half later and not only have I not gotten an email response back but I also have not been refunded the extra charge. I contacted them again today and the manager apparent can’t be bothered to come on the phone. They stated for me to go pick up a check, which you bet I will, but their complete unprofessionalism has turned me off completely from this restaurant which is a shame because they do have great sushi. Also the girl who was on the phone with me hung up while I was in the middle of speaking..just shows that they have no customer service. What a shame.

    We informed the restaurant that we were there for my wife’s birthday so I would have preferred a booth and there were plenty available. I didn’t want to be that guy or cause my wife any anxiety so I accepted the table they sat us at. Beyond that little point of frustration, everything was remarkable.

    This was our first time dining here and WOW. The food was absolutely delicious, one of the better sushi spots in Pasadena. If you are ready for a flavor blast and decadent assortment this is the spot for you. Our waitress was great however service was a little too slow for us. However each of our six dishes was worth the wait. We plan to make this a regular spot!

    The food was terrible, all the sushi pieces were tasteless, the restaurant was really hot, we complained multiple times to our waiter about lowering the A/C but nothing was done. The food was definitely over priced, not worth the price. I would highly NOT recommend this restaurant to any sushi eaters.
