This place takes its sake seriously, serving premium brands cold (as their makers intended). Don't miss the long sushi bar with some of the most beautiful fish in Austin.
It's no wonder this place has crowds, who could resist an Ex-Girlfriend roll (crab, avocado, spicy tuna, halibut tempura, spicy mayonnaise)? The crab cakes are huge, almost four inches in diameter, and mostly crab, bound by a light panko crust. The cucumber salad cools us off just in time to appreciate the tempura menu.
