First of all, the food was fine. Japanese-ish, though not exactly what you'd find in Japan. I had the Tokyo Bowl, which was essentially a chicken teriyaki donburi (or bowl), but there was far too little rice in in it. Never had a donburi in Japan or elsewhere with so little rice and in such a shallow bowl. The taste was all fine, but given the volume, or lack thereof, and the ingredients (all commonly available in Mexican markets), I don't think the price of 80 pesos was warranted. I could get a bigger bowl in Japan for the same cost.

Service was a mix. Quick to take orders and bring out the food; slow to pick up your payment for the dinner. Of course, that might just have been the waiter at the time.

The place is pleasant inside and generally comfortable, and it had a very nice bathroom.

All in all, it was fine for a change of pace lunch, but I don't think it hits the "delicious" mark. If it does, it is strictly doing so on the free ride that it being Japanese brings. It is tasty enough though, so if you want something different and aren't too fussy about the authenticity of the items served, and you don't mind spending a little bit more than warranted, then you will be fine.

Probably one of the best (if not the best) restaurant in Guanajuato. I have only been to one of their restaurants (at Canarios) but they have another one also downtown. Dont miss their bento box lunch.

This is a go-to without question for anytime I am in good old GTO. Sushi restaurants in small Mexican towns are typically questionable or even if they look and the food smells great, once you bite into that beautiful sushi roll, out comes running the Mexican traditional cream cheese .... yuck!. NOT HERE!!

Genuine fare with a mid week switch sometimes going from the blue fin tuna to yellow fin (raw fish recently added to the menu circa late 2017). Both are extremely delicious. There are generally 10 - 15 different Japanese style salads available to create a Bento Box as well which vary from nori sticks and garbanzo beans, carrot sticks, etc to something more US traditional like a chicken and potato salad. They seem to keep adding to the designs and bottom line there are a good amount of choices which can even include karage-style fried cheese and/or mushrooms. Mmmm ummm good!

If you're a sushi hound be sure to stop by here, or even go out of the way for a visit and with that, not something I recommend for other restaurants that often.
