I've only been here once, so maybe I need to go more to feel like it deserves a lower rating like it has received from others. But here's what I thought about it. I went for lunch on a Saturday, I had been meaning to try it for awhile because I always pass by it in Atlantic Station (it's right across from the movie theater). My wife and I went in specifically to try the sushi. It wasn't very busy, I guess lunch usually isn't busy at most places. I noticed a sign on the door that said "proper attire required," which apparently means jeans and t-shirt. I've decided the reason for the sign is to keep people from coming directly after getting a workout at the LA Fitness across the street. Whatever, doesn't matter. We were greeted by several hostesses and were seated right away. We had a server in training, and his trainer sat at the table with us. A little wierd, but they were very friendly. They had a decent selection of sushi rolls, not too extensive, though. Most were the same price (I think it was $12.95) regardless of what was in it. There was a couple cheaper rolls. We ordered four rolls and edamame. All of it was very good. The wife had a glass of wine, which was also very good. I noticed a lot of good booze in the window in front, but I didn't have any so I don't know about the prices or how the mixed drinks are. The waiter made a mistake with our bill which I was lucky to notice, but it happens, he was new. So, it's pretty expensive, it's pretty nice, the service is pretty good, and the food is pretty good. I would give it 3.5 stars, but I can't so I rounded up. Maybe I'm generous.

This place has so much potential. I really like the space alot. Nice decor, although the buddha statues everywhere are a bit overkill. The dj was great and the hip hop room was overcrowded and stuffy (as at most clubs). Really liked the layout. The drinks not so good.. what is the deal with the tiny plastic cups? $11 for a vodka redbull in a tiny cup.. and its not even actual redbull. The crowd was very.. ummm.. how do I say this nicely? segregated.. I felt like one of the few white girls here. Will I go back? yes of course!
