Wonderful ambience--great service. We had the blowfish ( fugu ) menu--presentation was delightful but we found the blowfish itself to be rather bland and lacking excitement, especially following some of our sushi experiences.

Very good dinner, good service. I went with business partners and they also were impressed. The fugu or blowfish dishes very nice. Good selection of sake. Highly recommended.

I loved everything about this restaurant from the decor to the cooks. Never have I ever in my life tasted such scrumptious delicacy's. When I go back to Tokyo this year, I will eat here again. Highly recommended.

I was skeptical as I have never had blowfish before and had no idea what to expect. However, I thought I would trust tripsadvisor as so many times before it has been right and indeed agian this time tripsadvisor did not fail. I have never had anything like this before. I went for the blow fish lunch menu, I was... More

I am glad I tried the fugu but I'm not sure what all the hype is about. Most of the dishes we had were flavorless. You had to dip everything in the ponzu sauce to give it flavor. The best fugu we had was deep fried. Tasted like a fried frog leg or fried chicken. The service was very good... More

Tripadvisor did not fail me. My son and I shared one ¥5,400 fugu set for lunch, which includes pre-dish, sashimi fugu, fried fugu, Japanese hot pot, steamed egg and rice porridge cooked with egg, mushroom and fugu fish and a desert. Everything came beautifully presented and tasted fresh. We were very consented. Every cent is well spent.
