The restaurant was full, but the whole experience was a let down. Dirty toilets, mediocre food quality and bad customer service. Food was basically banged on the table. The invoice was wrong but was corrected after intervention....

Ordered umeshu (Japanese plum wine) came in a tiny sherry glass. Way to expensive, expected a regular wine glass. Complained.. They took it back. The food is OK, lunch menu a bit less choose, costumer service is crap. They also refuse to give tap water...More

Most dishes are close to 20 euros. If you want steam rice with it, add 5 euros. I don't normally mind but the food is cantina type. If they charge this sort of money they have to improve.

We enjoyed eating in this restaurant so much we ate here twice during our 5-day stay here in Leiden. This is basically a re-imagination of the all-you-can-eat concept based on Japanese style dishes from all sorts of sushi to gyozas to grilled meats, tempura, ramen,...More

If one closes his eyes, one cannot tell if it is salmon or tuna nigiri! The cooked food on the other hand is bad as well! It is better to not select a place called shabu-shabu. a dish with meat and vegetables, to have sushi!!!
