I would say this is one of the best Japanese restaurants in Indonesia. Very thorough menu, including more niche Japanese seafood dishes. They also have O-Toro (Semi Fatty or Fatty Tuna) which is very hard to find outside of Japan. They also put special emphasis on preparing the food in an extremely hygenic manner, given the tropical weather does have... More

Our ingredients are fresh and prepared under strict supervision of our Japanese chef. Hence the overall good quality. That said, we're hoping to have you back for more quality meals.

This place is best for live seafood and sashimi and also grill. My fave is always been the same: salmon sashimi, shiro sashimi, hotateyaki, and from the grill: white mushroom, corn, and unagi satay.
