“How do they get sushi in Kigali?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Sushi in Kigali should be intriguing enough to tempt most people but luckily there are also other good things on the menu all served in a nice atmosphere.

“Authentic Korean Food in Kigali”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

The restaurant is a beautiful space and the service is some of the best in Kigali. My friend and I split a bottle of Soju (although sadly, they do not have any Japanese or Korean beers) and started off with the pork gyozas. I ordered the bimbimbap, which came with miso soup and a salad with delicious peanut dressing. The bimbimbap was DELICIOUS, although there was not a lot of beef in it. My friend ordered a chicken rice bowl, which was also very yummy. They had an extensive menu and I want to go back for the teppanyaki. Would eat here more regularly if it was within my budget range -- plan on splurging here whenever I get the chance!

“Best Asian cuisine in Kigali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious and the service was amazing. The sushi could use less rica so that you can actually fit it in your mouth. My favorite was the korean plate we ordered. No surprise; the owners are korean.
Please order the fried ice cream... You will not regret it.
