What we say

There’s no denying there’s a lot going on here, but somehow it all comes together in the end. The general flavor profile is guide by sharp citrusy flavors, from the mango through to the yuzu spiked tobiko. The tempura onion and poppy tobiko add lots of fun texture to a maki roll that’s reasonably priced and delivers plenty of sharp, clean flavors.
