I had done many searches and reading reviews for Japanese steak houses and Sushi bars in the Sarasota area, this had the best reviews, This place is the ONLY place I will ever go to again for this style of food!. My experience there was top notch, Not ONE negative abut this place. I was so impressed when I went last Sunday Night for dinner with some out of town family, I had been there 3 more times in the same week! The tempura is something out of this world! The best I have ever had. The Hostess and Wait staff are also fun, friendly and will help you learn a few Japanese words! I love it, and am going for my 5th time in an 8 day period. I'm not crazy, but am crazy abou the food! Max the owner is the best!
