Probably the best fresh oyster we have ever tasted. Ordered off from the menu. Just leave it to the lady boss and you will have the satisfactory dinner in this place. The rare beef belly pot is also another super dish.

We've been frequented this restaurant ever since they were known as Sushi Boat at Dataran Pahlawan. That must mean something, right? Good food. I love the Salmon with white sauce, in fact, anything with their white sauce is sedappp. Other set meals are worth a...try too!More

We found the menu prices quite reasonable and were pleasantly surprised at the presentation and taste of the food. The portions were quite sizable too. This led to a very satisfying dinner. Will definitely come back again.

The toilet facilities here are bad, by which the restaurant owner installed the Coway Toilet facilities but not usable. Moreover, the area provided for cleaning is so... so... limited. The Salmon Roe provided is not really fresh, but of course the Sashimi and Salmon Belly...are okay with it. And the price is not really cheap. Meals for 6 pax cost about RM250 with moderate food quality. Overall the service is of moderation.More

One of the many Japanese restaurants in Malacca. The food was fresh especially the salmon and tuna sashimi. The sushi and hand rolls were done pretty well too. The waiting staff were attentive and polite. The pricing is reasonable and the decor is quite pleasant.

The best Japanese restaurant I've been to so far. Well, at least in Melaka. Try the unagi and soft shell crab sushi set. Heaven! And oh yeah, sashimi. But I really had a hard time to finish it up by myself (since others don't seem...to enjoy much)More

Stumbled upon this little gem while searching for Japanese fare as kids were craving for some udon. A warm welcome greets us and it seems we'r probably the only non-locals in the restaurant. Plenty of set lunch/dinner to choose from. Prices are reasonable RM20 onwards....We order the Udon & Chirashi set for the kids. The Yakitori was yummy and priced at RM3 onwards. And kids were delighted with the sweet treat - free green tea ice-cream that comes after the meal for every set lunch ordered. Overall I must say it's a decent restaurant and fair enough, we returned for a lunch before heading home. Thumbs up.More

We tried Grilled Oyster Bento dinner set (RM30), Tempura and Raw Fish dinner set (RM32) and Chicken Nanbam Bento dinner set (RM26). I purposely ordered oyster because want to try whether freshness of the seafood can be satisfied. The result is I love it so...much! They grilled the oyster with their homemade white sauce, and the taste is so good! Besides, the dinner sets that they offered all in large size! I got too full at the end! Now this is the Japanese restaurant that I love most among the Japanese restaurants in Melaka Raya, already planning back again in coming week. During weekend night, it is better to make reservation.More
