Visited on the last day of December 2014 with my 16-year-old son, who loves cucumber makis. His selection of makis was declared excellent, much better than the standard fare in Rome's many Japanese/Chinese/panAsian eateries. Tuna, mackerel sashimi also very good, less so the prawns in the mixed selection. Meal was really let down by the poor quality of the tempura... More

My family has been living in rome for the past 20 years and I used to go to this restaurant long time ago and always love the position in the city centre close to piazza di spagna and the ambiance of the restaurant, very clean, very professional. I went back after years in December for a special occasion and found... More

First of all this place is large and has a long sushi bar. A roll avrages about 7 euro, noodles 13; the higher price is probably due to proximity to the Spanish steps. Overall we were pleased with our experience.

I've eaten in several Japanese restaurants in Italy and in my opinion this is one of the best. The staff is actually Japanese (which is often not the case), service and food are extremely good. The menu offers an impressive selection of plates, besides sushi and sashimi. It is more expensive than the average, but it is definitely worth it.... More

Very good food served by a nice woman in kimono. We hadn't booked so they put us in a very narrow table but it was OK. We ate until we couldn't anymore and the bill amazed us: even if it was not cheap, it was less expensive than the bill we had in a traditional Roman restaurant the night before.... More

We always go to this restaurant when visit Rome - japanese food is authentic and REAL (in comparison with other so called "japanese" places in Italy. You can find even table prepared suki-yaki dish in menu. Really recommend it when You are tired of pizza and pasta! LOL

We went back to Rome for our 31st. Traditionally we splash out on our first night out on a Japanese Meal. This restaurant did not let us down. Excellent service, excellent food and nice friendly staff willing to help. For a main meal venue in Rome this is one to go to.

After so much Carbonara, Pizza and extensive walking around Rome, we were so tired and crave for our Foods....Japanese... Closest from where we stayed was Hamasei. Without any expectation ( we just wished for Japanese STYLE food was good enough ) we visited Hamasei. Lucky us! This restaurant was truly Japanese. After that we found it was only Japanese Chef...

Me and my wife went here on our vacation to Italy while in Rome. I am generally forgiving in my nature, as in, I always tend to make excuses for others and while I do love Italian food, my wife suggested a change for that evening. The setup of the place, the staff, the atmosphere, is a 10/10 and it... More
