Excellent and unique sushi with wonderful service

Great service - we came 10 minutes before opening, they let us in anyway and made us delicious cocktails while we waited. The waiter was very lovely and recommended us the best and most unique maki I have ever tasted! I would never have put fruit and fish together until our trip to this cafe. The... read more

Everything we ordered was seriously delicious. I would really recommend you try their Calpis drink. It's really different from all the other places I tried before. We had the Calpis Melon with Mint leaves and still water. It was really nice. Our starter dish was the Oriental Bags. Looks like sushi but without the rice. A perfect dish to start... More

Went there end of July. Restaurant was not full, so it looked good, small but nice terrace. Inside, loud music, a bit warm. Not a sushi house for sure, instead it looked like a gin bar with space. Went to the terrace. Nice staff. Next door, another restaurant, music so loud we could not speak. Asked for sushi, vegetarian as... More

We had a really nice meal at this restaurant and enjoyed the atmosphere. It has a modern feel to it but the service is really personal and effective. The vegetarian options are ok - I had the vegetarian sushi selection and it was really nice. We also shared a good bottle of wine. We had an amazing dessert - fried... More

Our experience wasn't as spectacular as some others. They did have a great selection of Japanese whisky and a nice wine list. The night our party of two dined, there were some real issues. We opted for the Chefs Menu with great hope of having whatever was fresh and to allow creative freedom. What we received was plate after plate... More

This is one of the best Japanese restaurant in Lisbon. I come here very often, and this last visit was no exception - great food, great service.

The food and service were great, where we were sat wasn't. It is quite a shock these days to see people smoking indoors, can't think of where else in Western Europe this is possible!

Great food, service and environment. However it's too expensive for the food served. Two tasting menus (partial tasting, and not all you can eat tasting), two gins, one water and 2 espressos for 110eur.
