Nice tapas style restaurant. Every dish was a pleasant discovery. Special note for the squid fries and the beef (so tasty and tender). Very nice and pleasant service. Will go back and try the rest of the menu8

Small plates Japanese, great cocktails, and fair prices. Staff was super friendly and attentive. Strongly recommend showing up before 7pm with a reservation or else its standing room only.

Very good atmosphere for a Monday evening. The food was nothing amazing (but good) and we found out they don't serve rice with dishes you may expect it. Will def be back with friends but I think its a bit loud for a date.

You read the review score and hope they've been left by people like you. You don't need to worry about this little gem. Service is informal but attentive. Menu is simple but tempting. Atmosphere is relaxed and vibrant. The food is very well presented and prepared. Squid frites are worth trying, as are the beef tayaki. Good choice of saki and whisky make this a perfect after work bar and food option. 5*

Curious place, sharing table, music (maybe a bit loud) and cool atmosphere. Food is pretty good, we tried several plates like the fried japanese chicken and tataki and all was really yummy.
