“Can't judge the food because over a third of it didn't arrive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Three of us ate lunch here on 27 Feb. Or tried to.

The decor is lovely, the service seemed fine at first and my own dish of tempura vegetables arrived promptly and was very good.

However only one of us received exactly what he'd ordered. Our bill included items I'd ordered (such as rice) that never made it to our table. More puzzling, my daughter's main course simply vanished - we all heard her order it, the waitress seemed to be writing things down and included it when she read back our order. But that was the last we heard of it. By the time we'd figured out she was not getting a meal we'd run out of time to reorder. No apologies were forthcoming from the restaurant's staff.

I've read the other reviews here, and I'm sure they are right and this is a really nice place. I'd like to return someday. But I'd just like to advise Tripadvisor members in the nicest possible way to listen carefully when the waitress reads back your order, don't wait too long before checking on missing dishes and double check your bill.

“Home cooked Japanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

One of our favourite Japanese restaurant in Bali. Reasonably priced, friendly service with home-cooked feel. I do recommend to come during dinner time, especially if its your first time since during lunch usually it's not the "main" chef in charge. Food sometimes taste not as good, different, even freshness compromised during lunch hours. None of these things ever happened during dinner time though, so just sayin'. That said, we've frequented this place at least once a month for the past 5 years and we keep coming back because the food is that good and the homey atmosphere. A must try!
