“Definitely a popular dinner spot in San Antonio. The restaurant inside isn’t very large, so it tends to be a bit overcrowded. Service is good, sushi is good, even non sushi items are good. The Crawfish roll is a must! The Alamo roll is really spicy. And the UT rolls also a good staple.” –Adrianna Moryl
