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

I lived many years in Japan, and can say that this is not a restaurant that would appeal to many Japanese. Indeed, all the customers I saw here were Filipino. To begin with, staff attitudes ranged from truculent to uncaring, and generally rude to all customers. Service was terrible. Waitress got our orders wrong, did not bring out all the... More

As with other reviews, the food they serve is by far the best I have tried so far. The sushi, especially the Special Maki is to die for. Their beef gyudon is out of this world! The downside tho is the service -- it sucks.
