We are writing this review directly from the Restaurant. The food is so tasty that I had to review it right away! So if you are lucky to get here: Start with the Carpaccio Flambé Special (chief edition), also don't dare to miss the the Astice Gratinato uramaki (lobster/shrimp roll) and top it up with the Special Roll from Chief...

Me and my wife were there last Saturday, for dinner. We were in the mood for a light dinner with "very good sushi" and the place was a very last minute choice, fully based on TripAdvisor reviews. Great choice! Not only was the sushi simply delicious, but we discovered a tasty jet well balanced miso soup, and a great choice... More

Strongly recommend the place. Together with Temaquinho, it is for me the best "fusion" japanese restaurant in Milan. We eat there regularly and have never been deceived. Food is of excellent quality with a reasonable price (expect to spend around 50/60 Euro per person). Service is also very pleasant. Only drawback is the place which is very small so it... More

it is a very small place but it is possible to sit at the bar and watch the cook prepare your sushi. We had lunch and although we ordered a la carte the lunch menu option looked enticing. We enjoyed our meal!

In Milan Japanese Restaurants are constantly increasing their number. As a matter of fact also the quality is growing up fast. This restaurant is my personal latest discovery, and I only have to say: book a table and enjoy the food. It's something really special. A very positive note is that they bring you the dishes in the perfect logical... More

If you are looking for a real good Japanese restaurant with high quality sashimi, delicate and beautiful dish presentation, good service, nice ambience, it is a place you cannot be disappointed! I've been there 2 times and the experiences are both excellent. The second time I went there I was lucky enough to see the chef preparing the dish at... More

We were looking for good restaurant in Milan to have dinner without reservation, in the area around Porto Geneva. We were not able to find something near the channel, which is popular place for dinner. So we crossed the railway by the bridge near Porto and immediately found this restaurant, recommended by Tripadvisor. We asked the waiter, who looked as... More

First of all, this is a place where the chef in charge is really Japanese and not Chinese (having said that, there are many respectable Chinese-run sushi places in Milan). After two visits, the place has conquered the title of my favourite sushi place in Milan. The fish is always fresh and tender, the rice of the sushi does not... More
