For my main course, I went with the chef's special - the Steel Godzilla Roll - which was a monstrously good combination of tuna, salmon, eel, avocado, and spicy mayo.

The service was fantastic, very attentive without being intrusive. And let's not forget about the drinks...I tried their sake cocktail which was exquisitely refreshing!
