Great Japanese restaurant

we have been to Japanese restaurants in many countries and this was right up there with the best. We ate at the Teppanyaki bar, but tried the sushi first. The variety of sushi was excellent, using a good range of fish. The Teppanyaki "performance" by the chef was expert and very funny, but more... read more

we go here every year on our trip to Malta and this year the Tepanyaki sitting area was closed and not available so we chose seats at the Sushi bar which is great as you get to see the chefs prep and cook the meals. Service was fine but the portions for our main courses were smaller than we'd expect... More

There are some sushi restaurants and then there are others that stand out of the rest. This is one of them. Waitresses wearing kimono gives the experience a final touch. No need to say anything more if you know your sushi.

The service was amazing. I visited with a close friend and had a great time enjoying sushi. The dessert was not my favourite, and the price is a bit exaggerated (for sushi), but apart from that I will definitely go again!
