    We had an ordering issue (we basically double ordered mistakenly) and was surprised about what we got (most sushi places go over the sushi order with you, and this double order could be easily identified, but anyways). Although we didn’t ask for any adjustment or anything, the waitress told us that she could bring the menu we marked to show us that we double ordered, which was very rude. Plus, she was standing right next to me (so close) when I was entering the tip amount that made me feel very uncomfortable. Probably just a waitress issue, but I am not going back.

    Trendy and noisy sushi restaurant with additional signature hot items. Rolls are large and tasty. Usually a wait so reservations highly recommended. You can eat at the bar if there's a spot.

    Went on a Sunday (early) evening and had a great time. Parking was not difficult, restaurant was not busy. Food was good but perhaps not quite worth the price paid. It wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t offer a little bit of detail on that. Oysters, Kurosawa fries were great. Karaage was overcooked and thighs pieces actually came out tough (hard to overcook thighs!), kanpachi had a large piece of sinew remaining and choked daughter. All said it was 4 of us, no drinks >$200. I think we would give it another try, very friendly staff.

    The food was bland and very overpriced. I've had better sushi at some grocery stores. The rolls and nigiri had very little flavor. The service was bad too. I've never had sushi brought and left on the table with no indication or communication from the wait staff as to what each piece was. Multiple orders and no communication. Drinks weren't refilled. Our server ignored us and several other tables. They were average busy, nothing crazy. Yes I had a reservation and yes I've eaten sushi all over the planet so I'm not unfamiliar with any of the fish or how it is normally done. The place felt like it was designed for Instagram than for food. Very pretty, no substance. Avoid.

    My husband and I went on Christmas Eve with our 9 month old. They were so accommodating and friendly to our baby he had the best time! On top of that both the food and drink were spectacular. We tried just about one of everything but man, the bluefin tuna ANYTHING is tasty. We will be back many more times to come!

We have had great service no matter where we sat; the cocktail bar, the sushi bar, high top, the patio, or a regular table… all the drinks are incredible and the sushi is so fresh and wonderful. Please try any of their specials - you won’t be disappointed. Their ramen is also excellent! If you’re wondering whether to go or not- GO!!!

    One of my favorite sushi spots in Denver and this visit lived up to that. Our server was excellent, attentive but not pushy, the food arrived quick and outstanding as always. It was a Saturday night so about halfway through they brought in a DJ which made for a fun vibe. I'm sure some of the other diners weren't a fan as it was pretty loud but we loved it.

    Food is always good! But we waited about 8 or 9 minutes to be greeted by the server. He didn’t smile once and was very impersonal. He barely engaged would just walk away from the table abruptly. He was obviously occupied with resetting the restaurant for the dinner shift which we understand as we are both servers. However, as much we understand the morning shift was ending, we were hoping to get better service. Next time! 🙏🏼
