Came here for dinner. Tried the omakase. All sushi in general was very good except some pieces had little too much wasabi it made me cry a little. Chicken karaage was very good also. There is one problem I have with the restaurant. I detected a rather strong and strange smell throughout the restaurant. I'm not sure what it was but it smelled like some type of cooking or frying oil. The smell was so strong, the clothes I was wearing smelled like the restaurant for several days. Maybe their ventilation system needs fixing or upgrading.

Every plate that i order was beautifully put together, i sat at the bar in front of jake who was great at suggesting what to order . They didnt have alcohol drinks YET but i am definitely going back to try them when they do.(The waiter wasnt really attentive but the sushi chef made up for it)

This new sushi restaurant in the heart of Koreatown is really cozy. The space is very modern and aesthetically pleasing. The service is good with friendly waiters who are helpful. The sushi was quite good. Everything was fresh and tasted great. 5 stars. No doubt about it.
