Came for dinner on Friday night at very short notice and they were very accommodating in seating us despite us being 30 mins early for our reservation.
We tried the tempura, sushi selection, house sake and donburi all of which were very fresh and absolutely delicious.
Do note that the portion sizes are on the smaller side (especially donburi which was a little short on the rice and the salmon roe). The service was very swift and very polite.
Definitely a great option if you have a craving for authentic and good quality Japanese food when around Tottenham Court Road/Oxford Circus.

We had previously been to Roca and fancied a more traditional Japanese lunch this time. We were not disappointed with the food. It was very fresh and well executed.
There is a good variety on the menu and some good choices for set lunches.
It is much quieter than its neighbor (Roca) and the atmosphere is more zen -- perhaps a tad quiet. It was a Saturday lunch and one might have expected a little more bustle.

Wine was faiirly priced and there was a good selection of Japanese beers.

The staff need to sharpen up, however. I had to ask them to take our coats and they were a tad "away with the fairies". One waiter seemed to be plugged into his music as he served. A bit odd indeed.

On pricing, while most Japanese are expensive -- it is the nature of the beast - this restaurant was more reasonable than most.

However, we did enjoy ourselves and consider this place worth a visit.

We had dinner there last night and the sushi was excellent. The upper floor has lovely decoration and ambiance. Only problem was the service - the waiter that served us did not know the menu well, and forgot several times to bring more wine when we had askes.

I was taken to this restaurant by a friend a year ago and had a great time. This time I took my parents. 3 of us love sushi with my Mum a bit put off by the thought of raw fish. However, we were all well fed by the selection of starters we received, the sushi, maki and handrolls, whilst my parents enjoyed the hot mains. (Beef and Salmon) Green tea and beers. Highly recommended. It was packed out on a Friday so book!

Great sushi restaurant, always order a selection of rolls. Haven't tried to normal mains, but am sure are lovely. Only downside was waiting 30 mins for drinks....
