I'm not 100% sure what happened here, but what used to be a nice little bespoke restaurant with a great menu range, at a good pricepoint has become progressively lax. Service staff on several times have been largely indifferent, or down right rude, orders have...More

Our AirBnB hostess highly recommended Hikaru which is very close to our apartment, it was indeed a gem in the neighborhood. Small but efficient, great attentive staff and flavorful menu items. We started with the wakame salad and mixed tempura then moved on to the...More

I wouldn’t write review to a restaurant unless it’s extremely good or like this one , really bad. I order a bento box with teriyaki beef at 13:05. Then was waiting for it for a whole 40 minutes. Just not acceptable for a bento box...More

Went for dinner with two friends. Food was decent and the staff were accomodating. We had the sashimi platter and a number of rolls. Sashimi was good. Stand out was the Nasu Miso and Aburi Salmon (with scollop).
