Delicious food that is tastefully cooked, great atmosphere and ambience with polite and very welcoming staff. I would definitely recommend eating here if you're into Japanese cuisine or if you just want to eat some savoury food.

One of the best restaurants in Cluj! We went for dinner and we had duck gyoza as a starter, which was very good. As main course we had ramen shoyu and yakisoba gyu. Both of them were delicious. One hint: portions are quite big, if...you are not very hungry, you should skip the starter. In addition to the very tasty food, the service was excellent. We had Cristian as our waiter and he was the best. Thank you for a great dinner and experience, Cristian!More

It is not our first time here, we love the food, the serving and the ambiance. This time we’ve had a miso chicken ramen and it was excellent. Our waiter, Cristian, was really nice and polite. We are definitely coming back.
