My dad and I tried this place today for lunch at the bar section and was served by the owner Ray himself. Here is my account:
Combo sashimi plate : the usual tuna, salmon, hamachi and the white coloured fish (toro?) were cut generously into large pieces maybe 2"x1"x1/2". The fish all tasted decent but nothing outstanding I thought. We also got the SB uni that was pretty good.
Ankimo pate was a first for me. Quite good but the flavor was not as intense as I liked.
We mistakenly ordered the manila? clam which came in a bowl and some broth. Not particularly tasty but just decent.
Amaebi with the head deep fried was not as sweet as I had hoped. The head was not as crunchy either.
Unagi nigiri was just ok. The eel was a bit fishy/not as fresh and the sauce and the rice was not that great.
Oyster in half shell was pretty good with a nice sauce.
Crab nigiri was also not outstanding IMO.
Tempura red bean ice cream was unusual. Just ok.
We did not get a bowl of miso, not sure if they forgot or not. We did get the usual edamame and a nice tea.
Total was around $70 before tips.
I will probably try other places before coming back. I think the Yen sushi bistro on A street maybe better based on my previous visit.
Any comments ?
