Pros: good spicy rolls

Cons: putrid oyster in my omakase, otherwise mediocre

Typical Americanized sushi place, with lots of sugary toppings and sauces. Omakase tasting is fine but nothing impressive. This place is not as good as blue ribbon and not even close to Yasuda

This place is a joke. I went there once - never again. Boring food, small portions, ridiculously overpriced, crappy servers and no charm whatsoever. Save your money. The only thing impressive about this place is the bill that you'll get

Have you ever had a restaurant manager call you out of the blue to start a fight? Or call you to convince you to cancel your delivery order? Or hang up on you - twice? Well, I have ordered from Sushi of Gari twice and I never will again.

Pros: The sushi is good, but you can get the same quality elsewhere

Cons: Hideously rude service, a huge waste of my time to deal with these psychos, bad business practices

Pros: unique, innovative, artistic cooking; fabulous omakase at the bar

Cons: high prices, cramped space

Omakase was delicious. The restraint was small, noisy, and grimy.\r
We do not see advantage of food and why prices are that so expensive.\r
