Went on a second visit prior to posting a quick review here.
1. Had the tonkatsu ramen combo with spicy scallop roll
2. Nigiri selection of tai, halibut and albacore
Feedback: For the price, unbeatable. Especially for the lunch combo. Ramen is pretty good and sushi is fresh.

3. Chocolate Cheesecake
Feedback: Chocolate cheesecake is excellent. Again, the pricing WRT to freshness is unbeatable.
I like the fact that I can have sushi and the kid can have ramen + dessert. With all selections being above average.
Place had been open for 8 months according to the sushi chef. This might be my default lunch place if I am in the neighborhood if I don't feel like Shinshengumi.
p.s. do not expect high-end sushi dining.
