Genuine and delicious Japanese fare that goes far beyond sushi

An evening meal with a friend who suggested this very attractive restaurant in Col. La Valle. The menu was extremely rich in options, and not only the usual sashimi and sushi, but much, much more - ramen, tempura, udon (soups), just to name a few. There were meat, chicken, fish and vegetable... read more

We used to eat here for the last ten years, we liked it very much, it used to be the second best japanese restaurant in Mexico City, but they change the menu, the old one had photographs and a brief explanation of the dish, the new one did not, so if you are not familiar with japanese food you do...

We loved this place. Udon is delicious and authentic. It's a little piece of Japan in a beautiful neighbourhood in Mexico City. You feel comfortable.

This restaurant is in the middle of one of Mexico biggest neighborhoods. A very traditional place with excellent fish and real traditional Japanese dishes. You won't find any sushi with cream cheese or peppers, just extraordinary Moriwase (sashimi), sake, noodles and all the great food. A big Japanese crowd always helps to know this is the real thing!

After having visited this place for at least the past 10 years, I found today that food and service aren't even close to what it used to be. Waiters are not familiar with menu, food is not as "Japanese" as it is said and they brought starters after the main dishes and took ours to bring our drinks. Hope they... More

Great restaurant! Eat like if you were in japan, but in the middle of south mexico city. Order sake and sapporo beer. This place is full of japannese customers, tvs show japannese tv programs and the ambience is great. Start with sushi and then order whatever you like from the menu, it will be good. For business , or with... More
