Staff were lovely, peaceful modern ambience and good quality food. As a Japanese food fan I decided to try this restaurant which I got familiar with on Instagram. Despite some points that I didn’t like, the whole experience will make me go back there again....More

I was here with my wife for lunch. We tried the Japanese pizza and it was delicious. We loved the place. Nice music, relaxed atmosphere and cool design. We will definitely come back to try the rest of the menu.

My son introduced us to Akiba Dori and I will admit that the food was tasty. The atmosphere is more targeting a younger age group but never the less I enjoyed my time there.
