This Japanese restaurant in the western International District of Seattle is primarily known for its sushi, although they serve other Japanese dishes. We sat at a table for four - a mistake. They have HUGE chairs along the sushi bar, where you can watch the chefs preparing sushi. That would have been much more entertaining. We advise going for those big chairs.

We ordered different kinds of sushi - whitefish, yellowtail, salmon, etc. Most of these were good, but not as good as our local favorite Nara, and were just as expensive. We also ventured off the sushi menu and ordered a Needle Fish, which turned out to be a slender fish that had been roasted. It was so-so, and I probably wouldn't order it again. The highlight was an original (to us) piece of sushi that consisted of flying fish eggs with a raw quail egg on top. I loved it. The richness of the egg really complimented the salty fishy taste of the eggs.

Bottom Line: Decent sushi, but kind of pricy. There are better sushi places around.
