“good vibe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We walked in in 4 of us, without booking, and even if it was monday night, the place was full!We got a spot on the common woody long table and with our friends decided to have the degustation; they have 2 different types, one a bit more expensive with wagyu beef and few other stuffs and we all had that one. Our friend is a sommelier and choose few amazing wines from the extended and different wine list. The food was amazing, we all love Japanese food, but we were very impressed about their matching with non oriental ingredients! The portions are not generous, but when you arrive at the dessert we were quiet full. I'm not a dessert person, but i was really impressed by their mix dessert plate....so yummy!!!!
The atmosphere is great, nice buzz, quiet dark room and mixed clientele.
The service was a bit cold and too formal for the place from 2 Asian girls, while it was a bit more friendly from the 2 Caucasian guys.
We will definitely be back...maybe to try to other degustation!

“Average Japanese”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

As good as any other Japanese restaurant. Not really fusion or anything different where you can get same quality elsewhere for cheaper (even at 1/2 the price). Service is also minimal.

“Delicious, fresh Japanese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Had a fantastic dinner here. The sashimi is exquisitely fresh and beautifully prepared, and the sushi rolls are an exercise in the right balance of flavour and texture. It is on the more expensive side but it is an absolute experience, especially if you sit at the sushi preparation bar to watch the master chefs at work.

“Only ok, far too expensive with cheap...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2009

Only ok, far too expensive with cheap ingredients. Sushi good but not too much choice. Good for a quick stop and eat.
