Ok meal, but average quality (to at least makes you think/doubt). Small pieces of fish generally. A bit pricey. Service was quite average (to be nice to them...).

Leaks in the ceiling of the main restaurant room, as starter, an empty place with just another couple in a busy saturday , a terrible service and more than questionable quality of the food at a very high price. I will try to forget the...More

Miso soup for starters was good. Had the sushi Banzai variety plate. Fish tasted fresh. Rolls were tasty and seemed freshly prepared. Also had a rainbow roll which was good. Wasabi and ginger were good! Service was good, casual. Fairly priced for a Japanese restaurant...More

Maybe we are spoiled by the japanese restaurants back home...Their food is very good, but the portions are mid size (you'll still be hungry if order only 1 dish...) and the prices are high. My husband and I were there for lunch, we shared a...More

New Japanese option on Calle Recoletos. The food is good and the place is clean. Focused on sushi which was good, but not knock your socks off good. Definitely worth giving it a try if you are in the mood for sushi.

A really bad experience, staff is completely overwhelmed. Over 20 minutes to take the first order just for drinks. Not recommendable at all.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
