Good food and nice service

Nice Japanese food: We ordered salmon sashimi, pork ramen, California roll, spider roll, and dragon roll. They are all very tasty. Nice environment. Excellent service, offered and helped us to call a taxi.

After days of Italian food it's nice to try something different. We had dinner at this restaurant and it was a really nice experience. We had a mix sushi platters for the starter and a ramen and chahaan for our main meals. The food came extremely fast considering how busy it got and they were very generous with their portions!...

After a week of Pasta and pizza this was a great relief. The food was good and the ambiance of the restaurant was quiet and separated from the craziness outside. The food was reasonably priced. Perhaps more than what we would have paid for just pasta. Just over €50 for sashimi starter (shared), a main each and an alcoholic beverage... More

After 10 days in Italy surviving on panninis, pasta and pizza, we had to go somewhere different and this turned out to be perfect! The location is only a couple minutes away from the big tourist areas, so its quiet convenient. We ended up having chicken teriyaki, udon, gyoza and one or two other things, and couldn't have been more... More

Very good little Japanese restaurant. Comparable in quality and cost to some of our often frequented sushi restaurants in London. Quite a bit of variety on menu eg had okonomyaki alongside soup noodles and various sushi, sashimi etc. Nice alternative when you are tired of pasta and pizza, actually ended up going there twice during our 7 day stay in...

After a lot of pizza and pasta it felt fresh to have some sushi and this place is okay. They had some awesome looking sushi and me and my wife decided to take to different and share, two variants of california rolls one with fried crab and one with fish. They looked awesome and tasted good but almost the same.... More

After eating a lot of Italian food (which I love but needed a change), we had a craving for Japanese. We accidentally ran into this place while getting lost looking for a Chinese place. After seeing Tripadvisor sticker on the door we went in. We were not disappointed. Ramen noodles were delicious and so was my udon noodle dish with... More

Service was very thoughtful and the food was a very good quality. Recommend this to Japanese who got sick of Italian cuisine ;)

After many (albeit wonderful) meals of pasta, pasta, pizza, secondi's and more pasta, we needed a bit of a change in our week in Florence. This place was just next to our apartment, and we were initially hesitant about how good the food quality would be. Reassuringly the staff were Japanese, however the place was empty apart from us! Nonetheless... More

Although they serve sushi, this restaurant is more Chinese than Japanese, and it shows. On the day I went, they had no tuna (??????????). And they seem to think there is nothing wrong with the fact that they charge €15 for 12 pieces of tuna and salmon sashimi, and also €15 for 9 pieces of salmon sashimi. When questioned, I... More
