Its a place which is frequented by Japanese and expats of Dhaka and the price is also on the higher end of the spectrum. I have visited their place on a couple of occasions and found their sushi and... More

The restaurant it is a bit old but the food is nice. This is not the max you can find in Dhaka. A place with no big expectations.

Fail 1: Kept calling to reserve a table but the phone went unanswered. Fail 2:Upon arrival, the waiter just pointed up the stairs n didn't bother to show us to our tables Fail 3: The food was nowhere close to Japanese or Korean cuisine. Order gyouza at your own risk...you've been warned. The only positive bit is that they have... More

Nice restaurant just opposite the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in Gulshan 2. The Bento box combinations are great.

The restaurant is in Gulshan and in a one storey house. The ground floor has a large dining room with smaller rooms upstairs. A nice decor and a... More
