“wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

In a nondescript area, in a nondescript building and with non descript decor. Yet just about fantastic!
Pure Japanese cuisine, but, very cleverly, with local ingredients: mangalica sukiyaki! Delicious and perfect.
Soba soup was as good as it gets. Prices, for the quality, were more than reasonable, and the service helpful and very friendly.
True hidden gem!

“Simply the best Japanese food in Budapest!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011 via mobile

The restaurant is not so fancy place but don't worry. I was there yesterday . The udon soup was delicious and hot.
2 nd.fod: tempura mix menu.....so.... It was fantastic ! Even the rice ( I never had so tasteful sushi rice),
If you like Japanese food,this is the right place to go.
I am looking forward to eat there again.

“Real Japanese feeling in Budapest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2011

If you want to feel yourself in Japan go to this small restaurant, which is not beautiful or fancy just simple, small and not ostentatious at all! All the food we had here was just perfect, fresh, real japanese and perfectly made! I can`t remember if I ever had such a perfect pork dish in my life before. Can`t say it`s cheap, and please keep in mind that they do not accept credit cards, cash only. We wanted some sake and it surprised us they did not have, but we are not sure if it`s only that day or standard. Good appetite, and definitely do not skip this place if you are in Budapest!
