My husband and I have been celebrating our anniversaries there for two years now. The ambiance is very romantic and relaxing.

We are sushi monsters, so we always order the "All you can eat" sushi, (Sashimi and Caviar suchi are included, which is an option you won't find in any other restaurants in Egypt). This offer serves a glass of soft drink and a bowl of soup as well.

The sushi is always fresh and well served. Staff are very friendly, especially Karim. On our second visit he remembered us right away although it has been more than nine months since our first visit, he welcomed us at the door and even remembered what we ordered the last time we visited and gave us recommendations to match our taste.

In the middle of the restaurant you'll find a very beautiful fish tank, very big and very clean as well, all the fish inside look healthy, which means they are having good care of it.

The place is a bit pricey, but worth it. For those who don't eat sushi, they serve Tappanyaki as well, and the chef cooks it in front of you with an outstanding show.

My husband and I recommend this place to all sushi and Tappanyaki lovers, but be aware that it might as well get you bankrupt, so one or two visits a year is more than enough. :) Enjoy!

We travelled an hour by taxi across Cairo to eat here [cos of Trip Adviser]. With a three month old baby. He loved the fish. So did we, but he just wanted to watch the fish in the substantial fish tank, while we enjoyed some of the freshest sashimi I've come across. The meat too was meltingly good, delicate, tasty and tender.
Service slowish, the glass of red wine pretty dreadful really, and probably not a smart idea. But the staff were lovely; they were so helpful, nice to the baby and kind generally. And the food was a delight. No wonder this is the number one recommendation.
