Nice ambience, good music, nice fresh ingredients. Wine choice a little limited compared to the Mediterranean section upstairs.

“Great spot for Japanese and Oysters”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Loved this restaurant which opens at 8pm nightly, right down a little side street off Passeig de Gracia. Very unique dishes, very fresh, they have a Foie Gras sushi that is off the hook amazing. Everything we tried was phenomenal, reasonably priced and great atmosphere.

“Excellent food, great service”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

This modern restaurant is never disappointing.

The tables are mainly canteen style, but there is various options of tables. The decor and atmosphere is modern and simple, relaxed.
The staff is friendly and very fast.
The food: All I tried in here is delicious, cooked in an open kitchen. The ingredients are good quality, and mixed with delicacy. Yakisoba (Noodles), Japanese pizza, and the tempura options are my favourites. The sushi is also good.

Good value for money, but this is not a "wagamama" style prices. There is room for improvement in the desserts.

My only negative point is that the food is served so quickly, that there is some sort of rush, so it's not a place to go if you want to relax over a meal. It gets very busy.
Recommended.

“Good music and food”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Japanese restaurants are not very different when you eat just sushis and sashimis , but the freshness makes the difference and there was very good ! The ambient music was very good , beautiful people and staff.

“Good food!”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Located in the centre of Barcelona. Nice decoration and atmosphere, and the service was good. The food was also nice, even though I'd say it was a bit too expensive.
