Great food

Went here last night. The good was delicious and a welcome change after lots of bread during our trip!! Service was good, the food came out quickly and was very fresh. A great find on top of a slightly run down hotel. Well worth the trip.

This is not a make believe japanese restarurant, it is real one restaurant and you can see that for the clientele often including many Japanese. The atmosphere and service are irreprehensible (includes a private futon room) and for sushi lovers like me it is my breather in a land of biryani and curry. Menus (also written in Japanese without funny... More

I went to this restaurant with a group of fiends. The sushi here is so delicious and the food is excellent. The service is really fast. It's on the top floor of Falaj Hotel which is close to Muscat city center. The food is not pricy at all. You won't regret it and you will definitely want to go back... More

it was an awesome experience to try the Japanese cuisine with the Sake (Warm & cold). The Hot pot ordered was sufficient for 2 persons and was service was impeccable.

Quite disappointed. Went there for lunch on Valentine's Day, the menu wasn't clear, waiter visible embarrassed with that, some normal orders was available in the Restaurant but not in the menu, information about price confused. I've visited already many japanese restaurants all around the world and I can say without any doubt that this one was the worst. Sorry.

Went there for dinner, ordered a couple of sashimi, sushi, tempura and udon. Have to say, despite all the good reviews, food was just average. Not bad, but nothing special. Good service though by the Japanese owner and waiters.

Hard to believe that we will find such a good Japanese restaurant hidden in Ruwi's Falaj Hotel. Plenty of choices, portions for every kind of appetite, fresh products, good advices from the staff. What else could we be asking for? Coming back some day!
