Pretty Good Japanese

One of the many authentic Japanese restaurants in the city, easily approached across the New World Hotel close to the corner of Roxas Blvd and Pedro Gil. It's a little dingy and smoking is permitted inside. The majority of customers are Japanese, lending credence to its authentic taste... read more

So good and so affordable. Estimated budget is 300 per head. Try their Spicy Toro sashimi. They also give free iced coffee for every meal. They also have valet service. Food here is so good. I always eat here whenever Im in Makati

I read a ton of good reviews about this Japanese restaurant, but I was very disappointed because I got sick when I ate their toro maki. I experienced 1 week of diarrhea and my tummy was cramping. It happened twice; at first I didn't want to blame the toro maki of Nihonbashitei, so I ate and ordered toro maki again... More

Awesome food. Sushi and sashimi is affordable and quality is good. Chicken skin yakitori is a heart attack waiting to happen. Don't expect fine dining restaurant service here. Try doing carpool when going here coz parking is can be difficult.

I was here with family and friends on Dec 15. The place was crowded as usual and parking space was hard to find. It was because they have goid foods, generous servings, and inexpensive for the portions. They might have lacked in service and atmosphere but the foods made up for it. If you're looking for good foods this is... More

Had dinner here for quite a few times and make sure you have a reservation to avoid being turned away. Some nice dishes I recall is their buttered clams, fresh sashimi, and maki rolls. It isa resto where a group can dine inexpensively.

I have often driven past this restaurant and wondered what it was like so I came here with the family late afternoon last Sunday after finding Ukokkei Ramen Roy was closed (they were open by the time we left!). First impressions were not encouraging - The ambiance is rather run down & tatty & not too clean looking. Very definitely... More

Had dinner here recently and it was not my first time. This is one of the frequently visited Restos by our bosses. The food is good, service is quick and the ambiance is ok. Sometimes it gets crowded though, so it is best to come early. Must try is their salmon, mixed sushi, fish tempura, California maki. They have a... More
