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!

Plenty words are not needed to review this restaurant. It is by far the best japanese restaurant in Muscat and one of the best I have been in several cities. Proper sashimi and sushi, a menu written both in Japanese and english, a wide variety of dishes to choose from, all sounding delicious. And more important... Japanese customers! All said.... More

it was my first time at a japanese restaurant. the food was tasty and filling. the portions were perfect and the service was sincere and always accompanied with a smile. We had booked the private room and it was really comfortable. the only negative was that the aircondition wasn't cooling as well as it should be. overall, great experience. :)

Very good sushi and sashimi. Also offers the possibility to enjoy grilled food tepanyaki style. Japanese and other beers are also available. Approximate price 15 - 20 rials Omani with beer. Japanese decoration. A good option in town.
