One of the best sushi restaurant's I've been to - I would certainly recommend! Exciting dishes that are a little different to the usual sushi you find in most resultants.

We visited and ate at this little Sushi restaurant on Friday the 1st of July located near the sea front of Funchal. I cant say I was dressed for the part as we had spent all day sailing (outdoor clothing and sandals). Compared to our fellow diners who were smartly dressed for the occasion. However the food is what its... More

Took some friends for their first experience of Japanese food. We left slightly frustrated not to have given them a better chance to try this excellent cuisine. The service was instant, perhaps even too fast not allowing us much time to chat. We sampled a wide range of items from the menu. The food was well presented but most items... More

This is not your traditional sushi restaurant. This is a fusion sushi with Madeiran flavor. The sushi chef was very helpful and pleasant. We are only spending 4 nights in Madeira and today is the last day. I wish we can come back. Prices are very reasonable.

Great effort on the presentation of the food, but it has no taste. The food is served in very small quantities, as the cheesecake desert is a 4cl shot glass of "cake".. Credit cards are supposed to be accepted as mentioned by visa stickers at the entrance but you are nonetheless invited to walk a few blocks over to get... More

Went here for our last dinner in Funchal - and wow! It was the absolute best food experience we had during our ten days in Madeira. Not traditional sushi at all, much better! The staff were very service minded and helped us with special requests such as a whole vegetarian menu and one without any nuts. We went there during... More
