You will not book this restaurant for the atmosphere it is sad and remorseful. Nor will you book it for a comfortable night out, they use hard benches, and you certainly will not book it for the staff, they take no oneteraction to a new level and lost the ability to smile. I love Japanese for and Japanese restaurants normally... More

The quality of sashimi and sushis are quite good i have to admit. However they are very usual choices, nothing very very special. If you want a quick japanese fix while you are in madinat, its the place. The bento boxes are much better that tokyo at the towers , but I guess they might be pricier. I enjoyed my... More

I have to admit that I know Japanese cuisine and sushi very well (more than 10 years travelling throughout Asia). Having said that, menu is average, food is fair but not unforgettable. Quite expensive (about 40 euros per person). I will not come back.

Honyaki is not the easiest restaurant to find within Madinat (it is not intuitively numbered on the maps and most of the staff don't know where to find it), but once you locate it the food is excellent. I especially enjoyed the Salmon tacos and the Canadian Lobster Giant Maki Roll. Not very expensive either.

I came many times to honyaki before but never tried the vegetarian maki till now as normal vegetarian are boring.I found my favourite vegetable maki roll ever. Crispy vegetable maki. This is with avocado, mushroom, ginger and cucumber and fried quinoa outside. It's a must try and I will definitely back for this.
