Alot more to this place than sushi, great tempora, squid rings, and chicken skewers and sweet potate fries with tastey dip. Real tasty, fresh and not greasy, and a GREAT selection of cocktails and great decor. Definitely get here early on the weekends if you intend to eat.

We had the sharing board (between the two of us), great variety and the ribs, I would get up in the middle of the... More

Top class sushi, great drinks menu and good service. I love the booths where you can watch Dublin go by. The lunch menu is good value, dinner less so. It has a big menu and they're very good at what they do.

As a Kurosawa fan, I'm always going to fall in love with a bar/restaurant which shows Seven Samurai all the time on its big screens. But this little bar, seemingly a bit of an afterthought in the Yamamori empire around the city is a really great little place if you are in the mood for drinks and snacks rather than... More

Certrally located just across the street from the original Yamamori (the benchmark noodle house in Dublin) I popped in here after a disappointing earlier meal and had a selection of sushi and gyoza; all of which were top quality, well presented and great value for money.

Have been now quite a few times when we visit Dublin. Live the Japas menu and the cocktails. Its always busy which is a good sign, and the staff are efficient, friendly and helpful. Highly recomend the Pork Gyoza, Yasai Gyoza, Duck Pancakes, Spicey Age-Tofu (amazing!!), and Tori No Teriyaki (taste sensation). Cocktails if you like spicey try the Spicey... More

Love this place, I regularly go for food or drink - usually downstairs as I prefer the atmosphere and crowd. My favourites are the burger and rice side dish. The cocktails are amazing too.
