I was introduced to this place by a friend and have been going there many times since I move to Aberdeen. I love eel rolls and this place is the only one I know that have this dish on menu. The ramen is my favorite too!

The food has always been great each time i've visited. The Yasai Dofu (vegetarian) is excellent. Portions are pretty generous for lunchtime, but that's certainly not a fault! Service is fast and friendly and i'd highly recommend a visit.

My friend and I dined here on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy and inviting, although beware of the particularly slippery floor downstairs. My friend slipped and fell when we vacated the restaurant. We decided to have a tasting menu whereby we advised our lovely Japanese server that we wished to spend £30.00 per head on food. We chose a few of the dishes we had sampled before, and asked the server to choose the rest. We dined on soft shell crab maki, sea bream, grilled eel, lemon sole in tempura batter, scallops with asparagus, spicy pork dumplings and still had room for dessert. We both chose rich, dark chocolate truffles covered in sesame seeds, with two small meringues with green tea flavoured ice cream. With a bottle of sake consumed, the total bill came to approximately £95.00. Well worth the price in my opinion. I'll definitely be back.
