Ordered a starter, main course and dessert with my partner for a total price of 75 euros (excl drinks). For this price you should be really filled up. But left the place hungry. Service and quality of food was good though.

Had dinner with two colleagues. Ordered the "chef's menu" - 77 euros per person!!!! Not worth the money!!!! Basic Japanese food. Nothing special.

This is a Teppan style place, food prepared at your table while you watch. The sushi available from the kitchen is good, but pretty limited selection. Staff was friendly and attentive. Part of the Draw of Teppan style Japanese is the show you get as your dinner is made. Our chef was a good cook, but no showman. The food... More

Terrible terrible service!! We got there around 8pm, setting on the table for half hour and no one came to serve us. The restaurant was not very busy, however the waiter is rude and treated us invisible. The restaurant is more for showing than for food. Will not recommend for people want real Japanese food.

I´ve been there a few times and can recommend highly. You sit and the chef makes the food on the table infront of you, something really special to try. try to be there every time I´m in town.

Beautiful food cooked in front of you. The seafood sample menu is just brilliant. Service was friendly, if you speak in English you have to take it slowly, but that is understandable. Great atmosphere also!

In my opinion too expensive and too slow service but experience and atmosphere are typically Japanese and enjoyable
