This very reasonably priced Asian fusion restaurant offers good food that's nicely presented. Some of the dishes were rather bland, however, and we have had better versions of this kind of cuisine elsewhere. The service was a bit lackadaisical, and the space itself is visually not particularly interesting. With bare walls, sound traveled too easily. The rock music being played... More

I visited this restaurant with friends during lunch hour, made reservations beforehand and we arrived there a little bit earlier but had to wait a while for the waiter/person-in-charge. The ambience is rather nice, trendy modern restaurant with somewhat asian to european fine dining crossover concept. For lunch, there is only a short list of available dishes other than the... More

Positive reviews made us choose this trendy restaurant for an evening with friends with whom we had visited several Asian countries. The concept of shared dining made it possible to choose a lot of different dishes and enjoy them all. The price is very good for the great quality and taste of the dishes. Not only Japanese style, but also... More

I rate obviously relative to similar restaurant, not in absolute. This is as good as it gets in terms of value. Went there with a group. Despite being 10+, service was impecable. Everything was warm, served at the same time, tasty. You get to taste a bit of everything. Trendy atmosphere. Overall, very impressed with service given we were a... More

We ate different samall dishes, the concept is like asian tapas that are served not all at once so you have the time to talk and enjoy the evening. The price is very good we paid 30€ for two people more less 4 dishes pp included drinks. It is in the city center of Utrecht in a nice area at... More

We were in Utrecht just for a pause. It was the first attractive place we passed by that seemed to be open at a very uncommon time. It needed some time to find someone for service at aroung 3.00pm but once we have ordered we were quickly served and were really impressed by the creativity and quality of the food... More

Ok, this place is not terrible by any means. But 4 stars on trip advisor? The menu was interesting but I thought only every second dish was up to scratch. One or two were well below expectations. The service was also patchy, I ordered a gin and tonic and just received a glass of tonic. There were a few slip... More
