You’ll find things like dumplings and pork buns, as well as some quality, reasonably priced sushi and sashimi. You can get a sushi combo for less than $30, and there’s also a full bar with cocktails, wine, and sake. So stop by on a weeknight, or bring a friend on a Saturday and split a bottle of wine.
