“Always one of my favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

As every time that we visit Santiago, Chile we came to this place for the Japanese retro-fusion food.
It's always on the high level of quality and an excellent service.
For us it a "must do" to have lunch or dinner in this restaurant that over the years has keep is high quality and nice ambient and service.
We love it !

“Very honest japanese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I had the most tasteful Gioza ever in this restaurant and the food is really well prepared. Didn't care too much for the rolls. We have order some unusual sets like vegetarian and other types, and I thought the rools were too big and was lack of taste. Besides that, the fish was very fresh and the food was very well cooked. Next time I am positive I will give a 5 star rate. Don't think we ordered right this time.

“Best sushi in Santiago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Amazing service, food and overall experience. This restaurant is hands down one of the best dining experiences you will have in Santiago. Not only is it tasty, but you are also immediately welcomed into a lovely setting once you arrive. The sushi is absolutely delicious, the service is excellent, and the desserts are to die for (try the cheesecake!). Hands down the best sushi in Santiago!

“Amazing Japanese food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We ate there and were just suprised how good the food was! The sashimi was not that expensive ( around 10,000 chillian Pessos) and the portion was huge! The fish were cut to perfection and the quality of the fish was amazing. The place is not cheap but really worth it and for the quality I would say the price is more than fair!

“Good food Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Service is something you don't see much in Chile, but can find it at Ichiban, the waiter Carlos V, was great, to us taking orders, making suggestions and providing just great simple service.
