Address: 155 East Beaver Creek Road, Richmond Hill (Hwy 7 & Hwy 404)
Phone: (905) 889-8533

heard about this restaurant & passed by all the time, just didn't think of visiting until my cousin recommended it.. it's a small restaurant for which if you haven't made reservation, you'll have to come next time.. the sashimi was fresh.. sushi was great..

i don't remember the name of this roll, but they made the unagi very tender & tasted so good.. even LG, who doesn't like unagi, said it's good!

below were the sashimi for Chirashi..

Baked Seafood with Rice's not on the menu & need to pre-order.. it's not bad nor special.. it did feel a bit weird that we had a baked seafood with rice when we're having jap food..
