Just had great Sushi at a hole-in-the-wall. Literally, 2 tables for 2, 2 tables for 4 and 4 seats at the bar. For the price of the meal I could have dined at the Ritz.

Very small place just like most eateries in Japan. Loved the flavours and the freshness of the fish especially the tuna sashimi. Green tea and plum wine excellent accompaniments too. Recommended.

Read the reviews and booked a table. Super tiny place, maybe 20 seats (including the 4 at the sushi bar). The sushi and sashimi is really good, dishes look nice and the staff is friendly.
