A true paradise for Japanese food lovers. It has Sushi belt for the few tables near the entrance & plenty of other sitting inside. A cozy & Japanese environment with friendly staff. Try their set lunch or dinner...like them on Facebook & get 20% off..

Being an all-time Japanese food lover, I probably like this restaurant the least. It took more than half an hour for the chefs to get our food served on a Saturday night, which annoyed us, though the freshness of the ingredients is guarantee. The food are slightly pricey too.

It is one of the best teppanyaki that I have ever tasted. Also fried rice with seafood was great to taste
