Was around the area and my friend highly recommended coming here, so we came. Inside, it reminded me somewhat of Sushi town or something of similar setting. Greeted by a friendly waitress who was VERY LOUD, we were seated :)

First off, EC did NOT warn me about the portion sizes. So of course I ordered way too much ><" Anyways, saw Takoyaki ($3.95) and ordered it of course! Very fresh and crispy, sauce wasn't tangy enough though. I would've liked a bit of seaweed to top it, but I guess it's different for every store.
On top of this I ordered an Assorted Sushi Combo ($11.95), which included salad and miso soup.
The 8 ginormous pieces of sushi consisted of: Tako, Ebi, Tuna, Salmon, Ika, Hokkigai, Chopped Scallop, and Amaebi (which I swapped to Chopped Scallop). Rice was way too large for a nice piece of sushi, but at least the ingredient on top matched the bottom. There was also 1/2 a tuna and salmon maki each. Ingredients were fresh, must say the Ika was nicely done, it wasn't too slimy or chewy, just melted in my mouth almost =) For me, quality > quantity (reasonably).
