They have the best spicy salmon sashimi and gyu kushi! I come here almost every month and the place is always packed but I don't mind waiting, that's how good their food is!

We always enjoy eating here, be early if you don't have reservations. Also they charge P15 for take out container. Place badly needs to be renovated already.

I suggest when going here, choose lunch time and at 1pm. last order is at 1:30pm. Usually lines are long and you have to wait. lunch menus varies from tempura to grilled fish. And Average of 350 pesos will do

Good: 1. Lots of choices 2. Value for your money (big serving but not expensive) 3. Ambience (Feels like you're in Japan) 4. Tasty Bad: 1. Parking is limited 2. Can get crowded during lunch and dinner time so better go here early

I wasn't really into Japanese food until my boss introduced me to it. He is a long time regular customer of this resto so most of the waitresses and the manager knows him. The mark of a regular customer: He has a bottle of Sake with his name scribbled on it and is placed on the liquor rack beside the... More

This place in little Tokyo used to be one of the best Japanese restaurants in makati, value and authenticity wise. Lately, the lines have gotten too long that a regular chicken teriyaki order takes 45 minutes. However, go here for the sashimi and sushi, it's worth it and wait time isn't as bad. Ambience isn't excellent either, go here purely... More

When some people ask where the best sashimi in Metro Manila can be found, this is the place I tell them about without any doubts. Yes hotels and high end restaurants can give you all the ambiance and fancy interiors but this place has a cult following and a wait list the longer than a jeepney for a reason. They... More

We went there and it was full but worth the wait. It's nice to go as a big group to try and share many dishes. Feels authentic with many Japanese patrons. The service was very good and quick -- even when there were many people, we felt cared for by the waitresses. The price of food was just right. My... More

The best sashimi in town, along with Wagyu steak on a stick!!! The place is packed to the brim always and the service is so so, the food more than makes up for it!

Pros: they provide big servings at a cheap price. Quality of food is a little above average. Cons: If you're not looking for ambiance and wouldn't mind sitting down on the floor (if there's no more tables with chairs available) Their service is okay for a holiday and the place was jam packed. It's better to make a reservation before... More
