TASTY SUSHI

I had been planning long back to visit this Restaurant and finally made it. Ordered Sushi which was fresh and beautifuly decorated.You get tempted to eat by just looking at it. Prices are steep but then I guess one has to pay for Quality. Highly recommended if you are looking for good... read more

The food here could not have been more unauthentic, of poor quality, and badly cooked....or should I say, microwaved. Our culinary experiences in New Delhi were pretty poor, but that offers this place no excuses based on price plus a very cheeky service charge as well. Avoid if I were you, this is no Nobu!!!

Though I am not a huge fan Japanese food but the restaurant tempted me to go inside. We did not try the main course so unable to tell about the main course but we had a drink and starters which we thoroughly enjoyed. The proportions of foods are small and very pricey hence we left but the quality of food... More

Butanoshougayaki was good, but my main was Tonkatsu Teishoku and the meat was soooo thin which I was sad to even look at it. Of course there was a bowl of rice, so as a Japanese point of view, pork for Tonkatsu needs to be thicker.

India's first Japanese restaurant. Very good sushi and bento boxes. Fish imported directly from Japan daily. Highly recommended.

Of the many blessings for which I'm grateful and truly appreciate is having foodie friends tell me about culinary gems I haven't experienced. So when one of them asked if had eaten at the award winning Japanese restaurant Sakura, I replied I hadn't and then embarked on a strategy to seek out this treasure at The Metropolitan Hotel. At Sakura,... More

About 50% more than I would pay for Japanese food at a local Houston restaurant. The gyoza was a bit odd (not sure what type of meat inside), and the Oyako Donburi was sadly dry (where was all of that wonderful sauce?). The rice was also a long-grain style, not good sticky Japanese rice. Oh well, at lease I didn't... More

SUMMATION: We tried all our favorite dishes from the year we spent in Japan. They were even better at this restaurant than we remembered from Japan. This was an extremely pleasant and enjoyable experience. The food was rather expensive, but well worth the cost.

I went here with a group of friends based on favorable reviews on TripAdvisor and everyone at the table found both the food and drinks to be lackluster. The decor was no-frills, but that was fine by me. And the service was decent. But the food just was not very good.

The service was excellent, my special request for Maki with Avocado was met even though it wasn't listed. The presentation of the food/table set was really nice and exceptional. The miso soup was slightly too salty but it was ok. They play Japanese pop music! Good job!
