They have all sorts of Chinese, Thai, and Japanese foods. We tried a few sushi rolls, seaweed salad, stir fried noodles, kimchi, and a Chinese prawn dish. All of it was very sweet. The staff were friendly and tried hard. It was ok.

Visited this superb place 2 days ago with family.Amazing Japanese delicacies ticked our tastebuds and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, sampling the sushi with wasabi. Staff is pleasant and very helpful. We tasted Japanese for the first time but the staff helped us in deciding the menu. Will surely visit again.

Good food & ambience, located in Taj Vivanta Hotel, Panjim. Tasty, & authentic oriental food. We went there for dinner. Only one disappointment- the tender beef we ordered for the appetizer was not so tender, slightly chewy, but they very sweetly made up by giving us complimentary fried ice cream which was delicious. The Yellow fish curry was good &... More

The coconut flavoured paprika lamb noodles was nice and all visiting this place must try the prawn tempura which was really amazing. Tried the beef in black bean sauce also which was quite good.

1. Great place to have sushi and sashimi in Goa. 2. Thai cuisine in form of green curry and red curry is also great.
