Wow, great service from the time you enter until the time you leave. The food is well prepared and very enjoyable. The new stone and water garden outside just adds one more plus to this already fabulous restaurant.

Visiting HCMC and felt like having some Japanese. This restaurant was full of Japanese customers, had Japanese chefs, and spoke Japanese. Although, I can't speak Vietnamese, I can speak some Japanese (though probably not needed). Very much enjoyed this restaurant and plan to go again.
