Conveniently located inside the Illa shopping centre this great Japanese restaurant offers a decent selection of sushi and the usual Japanese dishes. The rolls are quite large and every time I ate there was never disappointed. I'm a huge salmon sushi fan and they do it very well, plus their yakisoba noodles are fantastic!

Stopped here to lunch. Service was quick and polite. The bar like seating arrangement was cool and is always appreciated. The noodles and the salads were great! some sushis were delicious and others were very "meh.." Overall experience was very good - I would eat here again!

Price of food way over average considering recent japanese restaurant boom in Barcelona. Waiters seem to ignore you had to wait for my dish to be served for almost 10 min as no waiters were available even when the restaurant was empty.

We enjoyed our quick lunch with two bowls of soups and an appetizer while shopping at the Diagonal Island shopping mall. The soups were great and quick, not sure about the authenticity but they were very tasty and easy to chow down for a quick lunch.
