We ate at the restaurant 4 nights on the trot. We kept meaning to try somewhere else, but the food and service was so fantastic, we just went back for more and more, trying different meals each times and being very leased with each one. Very highly recommended. Superb, fresh food, great ambience, attentive service.

They have a number of big Teppanyaki tables where the food can be prepared in front of your nose, but can also serve freshly made excellent tasting sushi. Egyptian wine and beer are also available and can be recommended -... More

Its is simply amazing, fabulous decoration, great menu, perfect and attentive service (many thanks and appreciation to Mr. Hazem, very respectful and professional), friendly staff. Sushi is at its best,with a feeling it came right from Japan to indulge. Prices are bit high compared to equivalent Japanese restaurants yet good value received. Only draw back is coming from noise and... More

Two of them were touching/moving other dirty trays, door handles, cabinets then back touching/rolling my sushi! The other "chef" was spraying windex on the counter while, the other two were working and the seafood and wraps was in close proximity. I... More
