We decided on the spur of the moment to revisit this institution. Both the SO and I had vague bad memories of the place from a few years back but thought it time to try again. What a disappointment! The portions of fish were so large as to lose the delicacy that I want with my sushi. The one roll we had (rainbow) was poorly constructed with pieces cut such that it was impossible to eat an intact piece. The individual peices we ordered had an inconsistent amount of rice around the nori and were very loose. The service was pleasant but slow. There was no wasabi on our sushi. Even our toro was sinewy ! Even the little piles of wasabi and ginger were very amateurish looking.

Overall, having been spoiled for years by Joe at Matsuya in Sherwood Park and some great sushi houses around the continent, we could not understand what people like about this place. It did have the best variety we have run into in the city, but this is not a place to which I would return.

I know others have raved about this place...what am I missing?
