Overall is it better or worse than Nagoya?
Better selection than Nagoya, the rolls aren't better IMO. ToplessTenors my brother from another mother loves him some Nagoya, he's eaten there enough times that his take on the differences would probably be best.
This would piss me off since I have some select fish allergies.
This is what bothered me. I'm sure some people can eat fish, but not shellfish (because of allergies or a kosher diet). Picking out rolls would be a pain in the ass, especially when the sushi chef couldn't even tell me what was in the fried roll.
He held it up to the light and gave it a firm poke, and just shrugged his shoulders.
