Special Events and Catering Our restaurant is available to cater for private events: weddings, business lunches, dinners, and more. We would love to discuss how to be a part of your next event. Our Sushi Rice What sets us apart from other sushi restaurants is our commitment to quality. We start with the quality of our rice. We use only Tamaki Gold Premium Short Grain rice for our sushi. While it is up to 3 times more expensive than the most common medium grain Calrose rice, short grain rice is the gold standard in Japan for sushi rice. With its subtly chewier texture we find it is the best suited for sushi. Vinegar for our Sushi Rice For our seasoning Vinegar we use Yusen premium aged rice cake red vinegar. This is one of the best vinegars available to use and most commonly seen in the highest rated sushi restaurants across the world. Yusen is highly praised for its smooth and mild sour flavor, umami, and natural sweetness. Fresh Fish From Japan We use the highest quality imported fish for our sushi. Nearly all of our fish come in fresh and whole so as to maintain a high level of quality. Fish such as Hamachi, Tuna, Salmon and other highly sought after seasonal fish.
