Considering that you can go there whenever you want to, so if you are caught by sushi attack in your stomach you can easily go there and order it. Quality is on average and the place is quite cozy. Enjoy it

The food is fine, but too expensive. The menus which were exclusively in Russian bothered me. They did not have menus in romanian or english. They also need to hire friendlier waiters. I will not return there.

Reasonably priced foods but fish is not fresh. Udon is a fusion food, no idea what was mixed with. They have Thai cuisines, the food i tasted was not real Thai style but okay. When you enter, Poker faced waitresses in Chinese costume ask a question if reserved a seat or not without saying Hello first. When a simple question... More

We ordered several types of rolls and sashimi, which were tasty and fresh. It took about 40 min to receive the order. So my experience here was ok...and my friends, who use to... More

I have ordered delivery from them. Website only in russian is a very big minus. But i managed to get delicious sashimi and great soup! Decently priced. Asked for extra soy sauce and i got....a full bottle....quick delivery. Over all worth the money. Worth a try.

Back in 2000-ish it used to be a pretty awful, overpriced restaurant, but recently it rebranded, a second restaurant was opened, a third one is on the way. Ever since, the place is always full, with excellent food and service. It is, I believe, the only place in Chisinau that ALWAYS has fresh products. They lack desserts (only ice-cream is... More

Overpirced, No service. Marginal food. If those attract you, go. If not, avoid.
