heard this place was suppose to be amazing, so for an anniversary I came to try the famous omakase. we ordered a few rolls (good spicy scallop and spicy tuna), and a hijiki salad (unique dressing). so far so good, although the service was far from attentive (well, they stopped coming to our table once we said we didn't want drinks, we had to wave them over to order food after that). the omakase plate comes in sushi and sashimi versions, with sashimi being ~$90 on that day - it is supposed to be the house specialty and each sashimi selection comes with a special sauce. It took about 40 minutes to arrive at our table. of the 12 samples on it, I really liked two - fatty tuna and the fresh scallop. the baby yellowtail was paired with an overly spicy sauce, the boiled octopus was oddly chewy and the sauce was too mild, the snapper was just blah, and so was the tuna with tofu sauce. really, blah. to top all of this off, the oyster smelled funny, when I asked the waiter, he said it was normal... I took a chance and ate it - R O T T E N!! absolutely unacceptable at this, or at any price, really. at the end of the meal we concluded that we must really love each other and have been very deeply fulfilled by the conversation to have withstood that food in peace. I will avoid this place in the future....
Pros: good spicy rolls
Cons: putrid oyster in my omakase, otherwise mediocre
