You can see and feel throughout the dinner how much love, attention and imagination has been put into this restaurant. The ingredients seemed very organic and recipes were original and most of all very very tasty.

It’s a really nice surprise to find Mr. Sato’s sushi house and to have so nice Japanese food in Ljubljana. He and his colleagues were very friendly and the fish (especially tuna) was very fresh and tempting. I couldn’t help coming here twice and enjoy...the sushi from the master. Thank you, Mr. Sato, and I hope to visit you again ;)More

I have visited this cute little restaurant with my Japanese friend who is a foodie like myself and she could not believe how good the food was! The choice of chef’s menu was excellent - the quality and the presentation of the food was really...great and so was the service! Price not too high for the amazing experience you have! Definitely recommend!More

Ambience is below average: you sit in a hallway of an office building or in a hot restaurant with no air conditioning. The restaurant does not have ice and the drinks are warm. The waitress likes to argue with guests. I got a warm ice...tea. I asked for ice. She said “it is ice-cold”. Well it was supposed to be an ice tea, there was no ice, and it was not ice cold but warm. By the time I got the main dish it was at room temperature, which was 30 degrees celsius in the summer. I asked for a lunch menu without the desert. She told me “you cannot order without a desert.” I told her to bring me the lunch just not the desert, and I am fine with paying the full price. She argued “I can’t. I will bring it all. It is just an ice cream. You will still have to pay.” Sashimi was average quality. The value for money was average.More

I have never eaten anything better in my whole entire life. I eat there a lot and it's always unbelievably delicious, fresh and for the most part- healthy. The food there realy blows my mind, I love it. Since not a lot of people go...there, you ussualy don't have to make a reservation and the service is quick. I would like to mention the location of the place, which bothers a lot of people, since it is located in an 'old socialist shopping centre' and it might be off-putting for some. But I really believe that the location sort of adds value to the restaurant, because it amplifies that is still not well-known and is sort of a 'hidden treasure'. Also the prices are probably a lot cheaper because of it. If you like japanese food, it's a must.More

Japanese cuisine is very delicate and this restaurant does it perfectly. They could use some help on the serving side and the location is not the best, but it still deserves 5 stars.

If you are a real foodie, you will love this place! The food is divine, service is fast and prices are fair. If you go for lunch or dinner you are in for a treat! Omakase dinner is served without a menu, you are served...with what is available that day, but don’t worry, everything is super delicious! If you have any food allergies they adapt the menu to your needs. I would highly recommend this place!More

The restaurant is, for my taste, the best Japanese restaurant in the city. If you choose the right table, you can see the chef and cooks preparing food in the kitchen, adding to experience. Each of the three times we have been there we took...a 7-course meal and went home very satisfied with the tastes, the freshness,... The only slight negative is the location - in a business centre that is a ghost town in the evenings. But that will not preclude us from going there again this Friday.More

Place is quite small, but staff is nice and professional. Food is quite good, but prices are, compare to the same food in Vienna at least 40% higher. Sushi is good, sup could be better, I try Bento box.
