If you love really good, fresh authentic sushi that is reasonably priced in a unique and cozy atmosphere...then this is the place to go in North County. It is easy to miss as you cruise along the 101, you have to step down to enter and the front is not showy. But inside is warm and intimate. There is a conveyor belt at the bar/counter where the daily specials along with groups of soy, wasabi, and ginger wind their way past you. You are never lacking for the right combination of condiments that allow the oh so good Japanese cuisine to melt in your mouth. You can't get a bad meal here, and you'll walk out with your wallet intact as well looking forward to your next visit. In fact, ask for their frequent patron card and accumulate hole punches for every $10 your spend to get a nice discount on a future meal (they even round up). Full service bar includes Japanese beer.

For more privacy, eat by candlelight at one of the cozy tables, and when summer comes there is a little outdoor area to enjoy. Service is friendly and prompt, although it is a small place so everyone has to be a little accommodating. The only quirk is you have to talk a little walk outside through a courtyard to use the restroom. But good food at a good price served with a nod and a smile is worth a little walk anytime. Look for it along the west side of the 101 just past the main drag in Encinitas on the Leucadian border. Enjoy!

While we've enjoyed this place in the past, tonight's (10-15-10) service was horrible. After getting menus and drinks, sat for at least 10 minutes, probably 15, before one of three waitresses figured out they hadn't taken our order. She never apologized when asked if we were "doing okay" and advising we haven't ordered yet. When food was served, I asked for a fork, never got one. (Finally asked from sushi chefs.) Never got my soft drink or water refilled. And when we were clearly finished, took forever to get the bill, even though each of the waitresses passed by us numerous times as I was impatiently tapping my credit card on the table. I didn't leave a tip, and didn't say why, but yes, while probably go back.
