Their sushi menu is so tempting and I could have ordered more but we had a light lunch before heading out. They ran out of the 'Snake roll' that day, and we ended up ordering the 'Spider Roll', which is the tempura soft shell crab sushi. Mr, who is a fan of soft shell crab enjoyed it very much. 
As for me who likes unagi, I ordered the 'Unatama Maki'. Unlike Kotobuki Sushi who includes cream cheese into their sushi, I much prefer the sushi roll here. They are just very well proportioned in terms of rice to meat ratio and you can definitely tas…
