    55555 by samichlaus S

    55555 by John-Henry Perera


  • Chris✌ M.dessert was delightful

    55555 by Chris✌ M.


  • ArtJonakMagical flavors in both the Foie Gras & Duck Chawanmushi (egg custard with seared foie gras, duck breast, oyster mushroom, gingko nuts) & Uni Chawanmushi, Japanese style egg custard with fresh Uni.

    55555 by ArtJonak


  • ArtJonakFeeling adventurous? Tora-fugu, poisonous puffer fish flown in from Japan, meticulously prepared by Hori-san to remove all the poisonous parts. Served sashimi-style with mullet roe & crisp fugu skin.

    55555 by ArtJonak


  • ArtJonakChef Hori-san up front at the sushi bar & Chef Jean-Philippe Gaston back in the kitchen pack a creatively delicious potent one-two punch that every foodie should explore on a regular basis. GoOmakase.

    55555 by ArtJonak


  • Francisco EscamillaMac and Cheese was amazing. Pork dumplings were great. Sushi was okay. A little pricey for what I would pay at a sushi place.

    55555 by Francisco Escamilla

    55555 by Atticus L.


  • Judah J.Longhorn roll and it seems all the Japanese people were getting the ramen which I'm getting next time

    33333 by Judah J.


  • Christy LandesSpicy Raman is excellent. Great happy hour. Creative and delicious specials.

    55555 by Christy Landes


  • Alex CI can also vouch for the Lobster Mac & Cheese, it's delicious and a pretty good portion.

    55555 by Alex C


  • EvieThe Chirashi is well worth the $33. Sooo many types of sashimi! The duck dumpling shoyu ramen and rising sun roll don't disappoint either.

    55555 by Evie


  • Wil J.Sushi is good here, but the real star of the show is the lobster Mac & cheese. Other awesome choices are bone marrow (rich & tasty, done right) and Kobe beef (texture like butter, for real).

    55555 by Wil J.


  • Kevin Makata ramen!

    55555 by Kevin Ma

    55555 by John R.

  • MoiseKapenda BowerCold Curry Noodles

    55555 by MoiseKapenda Bower


  • Steve MFood is great, sushi is ok but no service when you go lunch time, too busy too talk to your server.

    55555 by Steve M


  • Antonio P.You need to make a reservation for the omakase, since it takes a good three hours to prepare...

  • Rebecca B.Caribbean roll is amazing! How could you pass up lobster and mango!

    55555 by Rebecca B.


  • Sami J.The Rising Sun is really good and the peppercorn tuna on top is really fresh. The Texas hamachi is also good but the jalapeños on top can be really spicy or not at all.

    55555 by Sami J.


  • Simone C.The Kobe beef and pork belly appetizers melt in your mouth! Definitely coming back :)

    55555 by Simone C.

    55555 by Billy E.


  • Stephanie M.Awesome Sushi spot in Houston. They won't seat you unless your entire party is present, even with reservations. Happy hour during the week ends at 7!

    55555 by Stephanie M.


  • Billy E.All nigiri and sashimi are excellent. Kobe beef skewers are a must. Sit near front during busy times as wait staff can be amiss for long periods. For special cold and hot plates be prepared to wait

    55555 by Billy E.


  • Chrissy C.Second to Uchi, I love this place. I recently adopted a pescetarian diet, and no longer eat land animals. Try the shitake mushrooms, pan seared scallops, and their whole grilled squid.
