This is my first experience in a Japanese restaurant and I really enjoy the food. Specially the nori maki is very very delicious, nice dark atmosphere I love it.
Ofcourse I will give it another visit and try new orders

Situated over looking Salmiya Bay this restaurant offers excellent food and friendly service.

Clean and well managed. Whilst looking through the menu, which is on an iPad, the staff serve drinks. The menu is explained in detail with pictures and clear pricing on the iPad. Be aware most dishes are of a good size, this makes is great for sharing. Typical prices would be around KWD4 upwards for the main courses.

Well worth a visit so don't miss your chance if you are staying in Kuwait.

It is a great and different experience. It has crested a class on its own where others are currently trying to copy but unfortunately they are way behind

This is our favorite place for Japanese food in Kuwait
