    Had an absolutely delicious dinner with friends here tonight. The sushi all tasted very fresh, and was played beautifully. For as fancy as everything looked the prices are very reasonable with most specialty rolls being between $12-$15. I also had miso soup which was an average sized portion and very good as well! I ordered the red devil roll, volcano roll, and the osake hako-sushi. I tried a piece of my friends yin yang roll and it was superb. Highly recommend.

    Amazing, unexpected surprise for dinner. Definitely willing to make the trip from SPB over to Ybor again in the future. BF raved about the blue crab rangoon. Tuna was super fresh. Prices were great.

    Tonight was probably the worst service we ever experienced at this establishment. We come here often and absolutely love the sushi and respect the chefs that have been there for a very long time. Food is always amazing and have never had a complaint about that. But tonight the service was terrible. We were greeted and no booths were available so we sat at the sushi bar. We sat there for a while, and finally the lady that told us we could sit where there was a napkin came over and got our drink orders, just two sodas. We waited for maybe 1-3 minutes, and then another server comes over and asked what we wanted to drink. We let her know that we had just told the other lady but we can order with her. She rolled her eyes and a let me check came out of her mouth, and then we waited for maybe a good 10 minutes before the first woman came back with our drinks. We gave her the order, and thought our salads would come out shortly, and they just never arrived. The couple that came in in front of us had sat ate and paid before we even got our food. We received our rolls from the sushi chef and she never came back to check on us or ask for refills at all. Not sure what was going on this night but your servers were not happy to be there.

    Let me start by saying the food and atmosphere were both quite nice. However we had absolutely abhorrent service from Andrea W. Possibly the worst I've ever experienced. She never gave us all of our drinks, and the ones we did recieve weren't correct. She proceeded to get our food orders wrong, then stated we were making false claims about what we ordered. While this is going on she spills a drink all over my mother's phone and clothes. She says "oh I'll go get you some napkins." She never returned with anything to clean up the spill. Meanwhile my mother's phone was having problems from being covered in the spilled drink. Manager came by later to help with our orders being incorrect only to tell us that the incorrect food they had given us had to be taken back even though THEY had put them in to go boxes and tied them up for us to take. They left us with the choice of no food, or paying double for the wrong food we hadn't ordered. A shame really because the food is good. If only the management and servers weren't a bunch of clowns. I would give them a 0/5 if I could. Never going to visit again. Have pictures of some of the leftover food I guess.
