Great service, sake, & sushi!.
For lunch, we both had the deluxe sashimi platter - absolutely wonderful!! It was VERY fresh, beautifully presented, well prepared. This was the FRESHEST raw sushi I've ever had in Memphis. The waiter was so attentive - we never had to ask for anything except the extras we ordered in the middle of the meal. If you love raw shushi, this is THE place to get it in Memphis!
Good drinks but don't eat the food.
The Georgia Peach Martini was great as well as their selection of sake but stay clear of their food. Their Swordfish Risotto and it was by far the worse meal ever eaten. The fish was not fresh and overcooked.
A typical, trendy lounge - smoke, booze, more smoke and sushi.
I visited for the first time last week. If in any other city this restaurant/lounge would be standard. In Memphis of course it's considered incredibly hip and funky.
While the food, ambiance and wait staff were good, I still can't stomach the clouds of smoke that legally fill restaurants in this town. It diminishes the experience and turns a perfectly good cosmo, wine and sushi into something less palatable.
I will say that people watching was incredibly good. Plenty of guys in their new, favorite shirts (you know the one - wide collar, patterns and tails out over their ripped just right faded jeans), and girls in their "I wouldn't wear this opened back sequined top anywhere else outfit". The word overdone comes to mind - ironic for a place that serves raw fish.
This place is absolutely wonderful...it's like the restaurant of my dreams and I love the atmosphere. Never would I have known about this place if it wasn't for a family member of mine. I love this place so I have no problems with it at all.
I was impressed with the food, the atmosphere was wonderful. It was a romantic experience. Very laid back and had a 'downtown San Francisco' feel to it! The service was great; drinks were great. I loved dining on the blue suede sectional sofas in front of the big screen tv. Very relaxing. Did not feel rushed to eat. This could very well become my favorite hangout! ((-:
