most of the fish quality not up to par except the ankimo and the toro tartare sushi. it just didn't seem as good as before (the last time i went there was about a couple years ago). the atmosphere was more assembly-line like mcdonald's rather than a serious sushi restaurant, which it kind of used to be. also, i got on the side of the novice sushi chef who got on my nerves with his irritating laugh and somewhat faulty sushi skills. it just wasn't very good. i'll stick to echigo or nozawa or wasabe for this type of sushi.
also, tried more a couple weeks ago which was top notch from the well-marbled toro to the fatty hamachi to the subtle not too salty toro tartare to the japanese pear and strawberry dessert. and here at least i was served by the real sushi chef and there was more personalized attention and everything was not prepared in advance like at sasabune.
