Came with friends and certainly this is an expensive Japanese restaurant as our bills came more than 20,000rps. The are lots of variety which you can't find in other part of Colombo. Nice ambiance and comfortable place for meeting as there are private rooms. The Sushi were good but the Ramen was just average. Overall, a good place for Japanese... More

Had authentic Japanese food here. We ordered some Sushi and Yakitori for starters and some pork cutlet curry and rice for mains. Overall a nice place to visit with good ambience.

The only place in Colombo you can get real quality Japanese food. I love this place even though they are on the pricy side. I say still worth the money. Just love the food here.

This is the best place to eat in Colombo. Very good ambience but it's really the food that impresses. The menu is very well thought out and the food, delicate and gorgeous. Order the wagyu burgher (need to order 24 hrs in advance) it's sublime. The wine list can be updated though.

On entering, the ambience makes you feel like you're really in Japan. We ordered cold sake and some tuna sushi which were really good but the portion were tiny. I have had sushi around the world and have never seen sushi this small anywhere. For our main course, we ordered the Tsukune Nabe which they say on their menu is... More

We enjoyed the dinner tremendously and would say that the quality is on par with international Japanese food standards, which is probably the reason why it is the only restaurant from Sri Lanka that made it to Miele list 2013. Service was alright and we got over a big discussion over the reservation. Definitely go if you want an Asian... More

A good authentic choice and actually the only Japanese I know of in Colombo. A little expensive but lunch offers a bit better value.
