We have to follow-up for our order and wait for more than 30 mins before we receive our food. We ordered sakura mix and chicken teriyaki with rice and the rice tasted like from the bottom of the rice cooker. Also, the food is no...More

We were served for dinner/supper here after 21:30 pm. They have some nice combos for sharing. Sashimi was lovely, they served some interesting and tasty sushi combinations, which was good for that price. The rice, however, is not at all authentic: too warm/sticky/sweet.
