This place is one of those places where you get what you pay for and you have to pay a little more for a excellent meal and they have a lot of good food in here.

First of all the spinach was dirty. It tasted like dirt and was extermely grainy, they didn't not wash the spinach. Second, the Gyoza tasted like some cheap store brand and the sushi itself was not good...That brings us to our last issue.

Pros: Nice decor..

Cons: the food and definitely the price!

The decor is fairly stylish and modern, though not very memorable. It is indeed loud inside, and not terribly intimate. I was very unimpressed with our server. He was young and clearly inexperienced - both with this restaurant and with waiting tables in general. He knew little about the food, nothing about the sake list, and visited us at odd intervals that did not correspond with our needs. AFTER we ordered our 2nd bottle of sake, which he could tell us nothing about, the bartender/somellier visited us and suggested we order the sake flights next time to taste some high-end sakes at a low price.

Expensive. Thin, small slices of sushi served. Bland sushi. I was disappointed with the poor quality of sushi, especially if it is going to be charged at a high price.

I have tried this restaurant out a couple of times and it's just not good. I love sushi, but it has to be good. Also, this place is way too expensive when there are better sushi restaurants at better prices in Houston.
