This is a unique experience in Enschede; but not only for people from here, I don't remember myself having such a great time in a Japanese restaurant in another place. From service, to food, the complete experience is really worth the price.

We live in Enschede and frequent the restaurant often. In restaurant dining is an option and take out also. The quality of the offerings are excellent and authentic - of the level you would find in Japan. For in restaurant dining reservations are always needed. The chef menu is always a desirable option.

Located opposite the train station , this little japanese place is a gem in enschede. Its busy on a weeknight which is a good sign. The food is modern japanese with a fair variety of sushi and sashimi for a place about as far inland as one could get in the netherlands. Service is a little sporadic with a lot... More

Excellent food and service. Take away too. A little difficult to make a reservation. The menu is a good option, you can have it with fish or meet.

We had a wonderful "Chef's Choice No.2" menu. The staff is very friendly. They take time to answer questions. The atmosphere is very relaxed. The Lobster was our favourite, but everytging else was great too. Its not cheap but reasonable affordable.

This time, after about 2 years since our last visit we were a bit disappointed. The service was good and friendly, yet the time in between ordering and receiving was longer than desirable. The food was very good, but not as wow as we remembered. Perhaps we were unlucky... Ah! And we ended up leaving with a strong smokey smell... More

Great food and atmosphere. Makes for a nice, special night out. The prices are a bit expensive, yes, but nothing unexpected for high-quality sushi. Very kind waitstaff. Reservations mandatory. We will return.

Been here several times with the family. Prices are higher than normal, so keep that in mind. Also, I suggest you call to make a reservation. All the food is great! They have individual meals or group meals also. I had the Oysters once and was unhappy with them because they only had Lemon juice and Salt/Pepper for them (No... More

Food is very fresh and tasty. Very high quality food. It is always busy and cozy. I recommend, to make a reservation. It is an expensive resturant. The staff are just ok. I will go there often.

Great sushi with a very large range to choose from. If oplanning to go at a peak time make sure you book as it gets busy. The staff are more than willing to mix and match dishes if you feel like additional variety. Check their opening times they caugh me short on several occasions.....
