  • Michael L.Sushi was good but a bit overpriced. Sake selection is fantastic but be careful they don't try to rope you into paying for a way expensive bottle instead of caraffe

  • A7MAD NThe place atmosphere is fantastic but the food not tasty as much as fat salmon restaurant, also, it is overpriced.

    55555 by A7MAD N

  • Amber LoweyThe rock shrimp is where it's at

    55555 by Amber Lowey

  • Jenna OUpscale sushi venue that lives up to its reputation. Go with a group and get to sit in one of the "pods". Large and accommodating menu.

    55555 by Jenna O

  • Joe C.Pod was probably my first "upscale" restaurant when I was a teen. It's fun and has great sushi rolls but can get loud. If you want something more casual than Morimoto or RAW, pod is a fun joint

    55555 by Joe C.

  • David H.Delicious chicken macadamia stir fry but expensive.

    55555 by David H.

  • Randy TSushi was absolutely amazing. Fresh and good

  • Bre EThey recently started a happy hour from 5 to 7pm Monday thru Friday. Certain appetizers are 1/2 off and so are the cocktails, wine and beer selections.

    55555 by Bre E

  • Ryan CWhen it opened, it was the best Japanese in town. Now it is over-priced for the same things you can get elsewhere for cheaper. You won't have a bad meal overall.

    55555 by Ryan C

  • Ekaterina ZFashionable, tasty, unusual! Great! Absolutely love this place!

    55555 by Ekaterina Z

  • Catherine R.Come here for the atmosphere, typical of Starr restaurants. Food is quality, but not outstanding by any means and will cost you. Primarily good for special occasions.

    55555 by Catherine R.

    55555 by Jeff Curry

  • Carol Ann S.We had a round table in the back room - great for conversation. I asked for a spicey tuna roll - not exactly on the menu - didn't want the crab on top - excellent!

    33333 by Carol Ann S.

  • Do-Hee J.Been here for the first time to have a quick take out. I understand it was a busy night. But having to wait more than 45 minutes for three rolls of sushi is absurd esp with apathetic service
