I didn't like their sushi. They were stingy on the ingredients. The unagi roll had too much rice and the inside was 3 pieces of carrot. That was very disappointing. For the ahi roll, the inside was cucumber and carrots. I was expecting imitation crab meat or maybe some tobiko.
They had some interesting desserts. It's desserts you don't normally see in the other izakaya restaurants. I've had milk pudding before but the milk pudding here, wasn't so great. I'm not sure what kind of soy milk they use but it didn't taste good. The warabi mochi looked really good and the waiter described it as chi chi dango. It was not chi chi dango! I felt like I was eating one of those energy gel blocks. I could feel the mochi texture but at the same time as I was biting it was like biting into gelatin. That was not good. But anyways, the other dishes I had were very good so do check them out.
