No apology, then we were rushed when the food actually showed up. It’s a cool building and the sushi is good for Nashville but we will not be back. If I’m going to spend that kind of money for an experience I would like to have a good one.

Had reservations for outdoor but due to weather we decided to sit inside and they were able to accommodate us very easily. Best sushi roll was the Tennessee Two Step. The Tebasaki is under rated and felt it was the best thing we ate. It’s tiny chicken wings which were tender and came right off the bone.. so flavorful and tasty!! The Asian Mixed Greens salad - the sesame dressing made this salad amazing! The Onna Old Fashioned was surprisingly quite tasty. Overall totally satisfied and would go back for the wings any day of the week!

The desert was not good however, so skip that. Probably one of the worst crème brûlée and chocolate lava cakes we have ever had but everything else was first class. It was our anniversary so they seated us on a great table and served champagne. This is what keeps us coming back!

Pricey menu. We got two appetizers and 3 sushi rolls. Due to the portion sizes you’re left ordering more than you’d expect. Good experience overall.

So was the Macha Mocktail. The duck was tasty but a bit dry and the peppers were a nice side. Service was great, prices are not bad and the restaurant is nice inside. It is unfortunate that you have to pay for parking and at the moment the restaurant is in the middle of a building site! Will Uber back once the work around restaurant completed and the menu change finalized.
