    We had a fantastic sushi experience at the bar. We were already impressed with the Aiko and Handies concepts, so we had high expectations for this one, and it did not disappoint. Among the dishes we ordered, the sashimi and wagyu toasts stood out as our favorites, along with the delicious crudo. The only disappointment for us was the chicken fat rice dish. Despite this small hiccup, we’re definitely planning to return for another visit.
