“ok food, very grumpy waitress”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

After a week of excellent basque country pintxos, we were looking for a sit down and slightly different experience. The nigiri and maki was pretty good. However, I think the tuna sashimi had been sitting for a while.

The waitress was so grumpy that if I had been less foot weary I would have walked out. She cheered up as it got closer to us leaving....

“Disorganised with very average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Ate here with 10 friends and we were the first in on a Saturday evening. Although there were several staff there didn't seem to be any coordination between them.

We all ordered starters and mains but were served with side dishes before starters and mains at the same time as starters. The waitresses didn't know what they were serving and gave several of us the wrong dishes even to a point that halfway through service they were trying to pass half eaten dishes between us!

The portions were very large and the starters tasted ok but the chicken in the main dishes was of poor quality.

The group did enjoy the evening but more for the comedy value than the restaurant.

Not somewhere I would choose to return to and I'm sure there are plenty of better places to eat in Bilbao.

“Asian Chic”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2009

Maybe a good chinese restaurant, but not a Japanese.
Waytresses don't smile and dont speek castellano neither english. Expensive restaurant.
Susi and tempura were not good, nagoyas terrible.
If you are looking for a chinese restaurent maybe its fine. If you are looking for a japanese, don't go.
