“Sashimi heaven.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

This is a little gem of a Japanese Restaurant set in the back streets of Sihanoukville, you will need to ask your hotel or Tuk Tuk driver for directions. Frequented by the local community, expats and all. Try out the lightly seared beef served with mashed radish or the hamburger steak japanese style, they hand out a specials card every evening with that evenings Sashimi choices which are a must with the likes of King Fish, Big eye Tuna, Spearfish etc… As mentioned above book early to avoid disappointment this is a hugely popular restaurant with super fresh food so when its gone its gone.

“A most popular place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant is the best in sihanoukville in my opinion. Im no seafood fan but find plenty of tasty treats on the menu. The pork belly, fried eggplant, morning glory and even the salads are amazing. I would east here all the time if I could. Beware that they are closed on mondays and if you don't get there before 7.30 all of the good stuff will have gone. Reservations are recommended. If you judge this place by the amount of western expats, japanese and khmer customers it must be good.

“It is not near Golden Lion....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

this restaurant, which offers delicious Japanese food, is located on a road between the Occheteuil-Serendipity area and downtown. To get there from the Golden Lion circle, proceed in the direction of downtown, when you reach the first traffic light just turn left, go straight for about 150 mt. and you will find it on the right side of the road. The place is a nice villa with a well-kept garden and has a sort of kids' corner. Food is a bit pricey but it is worth every penny. The menu is very extensive, the staff are kind and attentive, the only problem is when you have big groups or families with kids having dinner, the management leave kids run among tables disturbing the other patrons.
One of the best restaurants in town. Suggested.
