Although I really enjoyed trying all the original Thai food, it was a nice alternative at this quaint Japanese restaurant! Super sushi, very friendly service all dressed up in Japanese costumes!

Probably the best sushi on the island and although it is in the higher price range for Samui you get what you pay for. Superb quality and good service. One of our favorite lunch spots where they do a Japanese curry special for lunch only....Devine!

Food very nice decorated and overall good, but the sashimi smelled a bit too "fishy" for my liking. (Fresh fish are not supposed to smell that bad). Staff very busy and very unattentive. Took a long time to get the food and a long time to pay. But we were warned about this, so we knew what to expect .

A very good food in the town. Big serve and full of good taste!! Service is okay. It will be better in the future if they can provide more option for the gueste for paying such as credit card : )

We absolutely love Japanese cuisine and have fairly high standards when it comes to sushi... this was excellent! We had extremely attentive service and an absolutely lovely meal! The chef came out to take our order and recommended that we actually order less than we had picked as he warned his portions were larger than average, and he wasn't wrong!... More

My partner and I just had dinner here and thought it was delicious. I'm a Japanese food lover and am very picky and I was so impressed. The service was fast and so friendly and the food was fabulous. Grilled pork gyoza, sashimi and karaage chicken was to die for. Topped off with house made passion fruit sake! I don't... More

How is it possible to say that their sushis are great? To be honest, if you are used to eat good sushis you will notice that these ones do not have any taste and are pretty bad. Not recommended at all!
