Good food. Nice ambience

Was there about a week ago. Really liked their sushi and teppenyaki. My friend ordered a katsu kare. And a Bento box Sushi was fresh. The food was on par with many the Japanese estaurants I have eaten at. Staff were very helpful.

We really loved the food here, although I chose a Bento box and wished I'd chosen tepinyaki, which my husband chose. We sat in front of the chef as he cooked magnificently. Great tasting, good quality food.

Excellent Food and Service but a little bit expensive, however they serve Japanese beer and saki!! We were there for lunch and unfortunately the teppanyaki tables were not open, only in the evening. Never the less one to recommend

Was invited here by friends. I have known of the restaurant for over ten years but only just visited, and I was not disappointed. From the warm greeting at the door to the attentive and courteous service at the table. We had a private dining room and as it happened it was the best for our group of eight as... More

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

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.

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.
