Just ate here after reading all of the rave reviews. The sushi was good, but all of the people who compare this to Nobu and call it world class... simply haven't had world class sushi. The sashimi and nigiri list was limited to five items tonight, none of which were exotic (which is totally okay, we're in Costa Rica) -... More

But it really is nothing special!!!! And 15 dollars for 8 small pieces is really expensive!! You will need like 50 dollars per person if you are a... More

Yes, I've been a lot of places. Yes, I've had a lot of sushi. And is it as good as Nobu in London where I paid $180 for ONE for lunch? I'd say all in all, yes, it's better and I've never spent more than $50 for one (and that's a LOT of food PLUS wine/beer). Doesn't hurt that it's... More

This restaurant is a joke. Honestly it's so overrated that I had to write a review. Don't understand me wrong, the food is good, the atmosphere is nice, but come on, for the price we paid, in Paris we find better sushi restaurants at every corner. And Paris is yet not known for its japanese food quality. To compare what... More

We loved the sushi and had a big group. The service seemed a bit chaotic we were not greeted by anyone for 20 plus minutes. We would return for the food not the service.

Food is delicious and comes fast, the prices reasonable, the staff very friendly and the restaurant itself is very cosy with a lot of wood and candles. Great experience.
