“Decent Japanese food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

When one has craving for Japanese food, the quality and price is acceptable. Not overpriced. Decent Nigiri, maki. the appetiser on the daily menu - tofu is decent. It is a Japanese restaurant where I did not feel short changed.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

This new restaurant (before there was another sushi restaurant) wasn't like we expected. First of all and the most important the treatment of staff wasn't nice at all (kind of arrogant and nothing of sympathy).
The food was ok, but not at the price that it's offering. We had a good dinner (talking about the food only), it was ok.
We'll get another sushi restaurant on town next time anyway.

“Excellent, attentive--and gluten-free sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Hidden around a corner from a plaza, this gem of a Japanese restaurant is a delightful place to eat. They offer an delicious "bento box" menu of the day for 12€--excellent value for money. And their special menu items (once we had lobster in 5 different forms!) are quite tasty. The chef/owner takes precise care with what he serves you and his charming wife is an excellent hostess. I require gluten-free food, which can be a challenge in Japanese restuarants. So I brought my own bottle of wheat-free soy sauce, but they have since stocked a bottle for other clients. The chef will make you a Dragon roll or other "American" style roll if you ask, and they are very accommodating. Highly recommended.
