“Incredibly Fresh and Wonderful Service”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

I've never felt compelled to write a review until now. We were greeted by the most attentive staff, the very talented Chef Komatsu, and the kindest Manager Ahmed. The restaurant was very clean, and the fish was incredibly fresh. The Chef brought out a few items of his choosing, and everything was absolutely fantastic. My favorite was Chef Komatsu's citrus salmon. I didn't look at a menu, so I don't know the names of any dishes, but this one especially made me come back again. I'm not at all familiar with the Arabic language, so I found the easy communication very comforting.

“Amazing food and service”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

I am not an adventurous eater and don't really try new restaurants and food. I accompanied a friend who wanted sushi thinking ill order something small.
The menu had so many things to choose from from red meat to sushi. I ordered the tempura prawn starter, the prawns were huge and the tempura was light and crispy, 10/10. For mains i had the chopped up ribeye steak with spicy bbq sauce, 10/10. Delicious!!!
The service was very attentive, the chefs, servers and manager mr Abdallah treated us like royalty. I will definitely be back next time i am in Cairo.

“Highly Recommended!”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

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!
