Anyone try it yet?
Went there yesterday. it wasn't bad. Definitely a notch above some of their surrounding competitors. Some of the pricing was reasonable, but it is $1-2 more than its peers in the neighborhood. I did enjoy my handrolls at $2 each. (I also tried to Salmon Teriyaki Don at $7.50 - which doesn't incl. soup or salad)
Not to hijack the thread, but I noticed there is now a disproportionate amount of takeout japanese on this block. There's another new japanese restaurant further up the street that I haven't tried - anyone know the name or have a review? Also, Sushi Bay, has changed hands and expanded their menu drastically. I'm not sure how I feel about that as the old style had a certain hole in the wall charm. On the other hand they now have menu items such as okonomiyaki and yakisoba. I had the okonomiyaki and it wasn't the best I've ever had (a little gooey), but it would satisfy a craving. There's not that much okonomiyaki to be had in the city to begin with, and the shrimp/bonito flake combination hit the spot. There's also Muracci's and sawaii sushi a block down (which sadly does not seem as crowded as it used to be).
With the plethora of japanese food and two thai restaurants on this block, I can't understand why there isn't decent Chinese food....

I heard about this restaurant too. Can't wait to check it out. Hopefully it will raise the bar on takeout sushi on that strip of Kearny.
