I've been here about 10 times, always amazing, great value..usually go with my girlfriend and get full and drunk, bill is usually around the 1mil mark. Great quality sashimi, service and sake. A must if you're in bali craving authentic Japanese cuisine. Keep up the great work!

Love the service and choice of menu, so much to decide on. Yet comparing to back home, for the same quality, we don't get same service and definitely not the price.

Great for big groups. But, as far as rockin' sushi... not quite. Interesting and big variety of maki rolls. Pricey overall for what you get. But still much better than Ryoshi!
