If you have a craving for all things fishy, then this is THE place to come to. Who cares about Blowfish, Ebisu and all the others in the city when you got Roger’s blend of traditional and more hip style rolls and sushi. The fish is extremely fresh, the presentation is very well thought out and he prepares it all with the best ingredients. Fresh uni? He’ll crack open that sucker and if don’t smell right, he’ll toss it in the garbage and not serve you otherwise. Spiny tail lobster from Australia? Special order it for a special occasion! Soft shell crabs? He’ll bring them out and let them crawl around before their inevitable fate into your stomach. Oh, and did I mention lamp chops? Special order it from Roger and you’ll be glad you did. I can go on and on but this place beats everything else hands out except for the time I went to the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo for sashimi off the boat…literally.

I came to this place a long time ago, for an event called “sushi mixer.” Ah, the good old early 2000s when people were so into meeting and mingling through online social networking… Anyway, I remember the food to be excellent, back in 2004 or so.

My recent visit (last Friday) proved me that the food was still amazing. Again, I love a special board busy with interesting fish items all over it. Even for salmon, we got to pick from a variety of three (NICE). Very good food and reasonable price (as written on the board). Young Hamachi (inada) is one of my favorites and I was a very happy person when I chowed it down within 5 seconds. And since I was with company, I was open to trying out rolls as well. The “I Hate Salmon Roll” was actually not bad. Though my preference still lies with the various nigiri we got.

One point deducted for service: When arriving, at least 3 servers passed by us without even the slightest gesture to acknowledge us. A party of two snatched seats before us even though we had reservation. Service was very disconnected and scattered.

Come at 5pm, right when it opens. They’ll still ask you if you’ve got a reservation, but they seat you. Excellent, love the messy andy, the butterfish is aces. Definately great quality! good service too.

Fish is fresh & selection is great. Although its always packed and seats are hard to come by, its worth it!! Roger (the sushi chef) is so creative w/ his rolls and will only serve you fresh sushi.
