“Horrible chicken wrap”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Popped in here for a lunchtime snack and ordered a chicken wrap with lettuce feta cheese garlic butter n lemon dressing. What I was served was nothing like the menu suggested. No feta of any description loads of green leaves tiny slice of chicken and the end of a tomato. When I opened the wrap to see what it contained I found brown rotten salad leaves. I pointed this out to the waitress and asked her (would you eat this???). She did not reply to my question but removed food and said she would remove it from the bill. Whilst it is not the fault of the waitress what chef would put rotten lettuce on a sandwich and expect anyone to eat it. It's sloppy practice if you ask me. Don't go here

“fresh,healthy and authentic ? nope..DREAM ON!!!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

The yaki U Don chicken was full of oil and noodles I guess they were fried before mixing them with the sauce ,absolutely horrible taste ..was like they have stir fried the noodles with a reused oil..I couldnt eat.just took a bite and then I have called the waiter and the manager giving them back the plate and guess what?they had the guts to input it into my bill..
The misso soup I got as well was cold and oily so forget about the freshness and healthy..someone has to check this cuisine and take a proper action because its a real danger for people's health.

“First visit to a Japanese restaurant”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We were in Malta in October 2013 and were at a loose end as to where to eat on Sunday evening. Luckily this little gem of a restaurant was near to the hotel and we decided to try it.
We decided to eat early in the evening and had no trouble getting a table. The waitress was very helpful and gave us a menu with pictures of the dishes which made the choice very easy.
The food arrived and was delicious - I had perfectly cooked salmon and my wife said her steak was cooked exactly as she requested. The vegetables with the dish were just as we like them - crunchy and not overcooked.
As a first impression of Japanese cuisine we were very impressed.

“Yuki Tori”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Got a table quickly-waited to order-delivery of food topk for ever.
Food was Ok only just. My partner orded a Hot Sizzeling Pork-it didn.t sizzle at all. I ordered Yakitori Guck-plates were cold so the food was cold half way through eating it. The sushi lookred good if you like cold dinners. Altogather a disappointing experience. The place was half empty so the delivery of the should have been quicker-the staff seemed to cater more for the take way trade. Won't be back.

“Convenient coffee”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Part of hotel Preluna so can add to room bill. Usually plenty of room even if only want a coffee but cakes are well worth trying.
