“Over priced place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Been there in beginning of December and big disappointment.The selection very poor and freshness it's completely missing.Somebody should first train the staff properly and explain that the the Japanese cuisine means only fresh ingredients,not only the name in menu even writing in English.I hope that next time when we try it will be succeed. And price in the menu should equal for class of restaurant itself.

“Hidden suprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Let me start with how to get there, because the adress itself might not be sufficent.
There is a small dead-end street goes from Maktumguly in between the US Embassy and the building of shopping center Turkmenistan. If you walk along the shops on the lft side of the street the door of the restaurant will be in the front of you at the end ( no signs ).
A nice small restaurant, like 10+ tables or so and a VIP room with one table for 8.
They have a good choice of starters, some soups and main dishes, including fishes too. They also have sushi ( pretty good quality ) and pizza too, thin crispy type. My favorite desert is a chocolate cheesecake.
The main menu is in english and russian, also the waitresses speak some english. They also deliver food or you can come and take it away.
Not the cheapest but the price-value ratio is pretty good.
Might be crowded around lunch time and in the evenings.
Some times it is better to park on the other side of the building, cars might block exit from the dead-end.
