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.

Let me give you a tip right off the bat. Make a reservation if you can, because once the doors open at 6pm, customers will start pouring in and by 6:30 you'll have a hard time getting a table. cons: bad service - there's so many people who come to this restaurant that their limited staff can't give you the...

It's like the staff don't even want to both. No advise that you can seat yourself. Might as well get the menu yourself cause not one waitress is interested. Forget being asked for your order either cause again no one cares. Like what do I have to do to get service? Food was good, but I couldn't enjoy it thinking... More

The wagyu meat melts in your mouth....Price is reasonable. Ambiance so-so. The maki rolls are great. Their sushi is good. They are always full of customers during lunch and dinner.
