Sashimi is really fresh. The grilled octopus piece specially made by the Korean master chief chewy and juicy!

“Best Japanese Food ive ever had”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

This resto opened six months ago and was recommended by a friend. You can only order set menus (not ala carte) so it was a leap of faith on our part, but based on the good reviews, it was worth the risk.

The food was amazing! Fresh, light and surprisingly filling, each course was a delight. We were served quickly after we arrived and we didnt have to wait long in between plates.

The service was excellent as well. Every server was smiling and attentive. The Japanese chef was cooking the food right in front of us and even came to our table to discuss the food. He gave us a complimentary plate of octopus, which had taken four hours to prepare. He told us the salmon we were eating took four days to prepare. Clearly, they care a lot about the food and it showed!

Overall, a great experience and worth the money. Will return and bring friends and family.

“The best sushi in Boracay!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Sit at the bar and watch the chef prepare the freshest sushi right before your eyes! I went here with two friends for lunch. Two of us got the Lunch Set C (PHP750) and the other one got the Lunch Set B (PHP650). Lemme tell you, the C was so worth it. All of us were struggling to finish our food, but the C had a greater variety of sushi and more side dishes. If you just want to focus on your sushi though, Set A is probably a good bet.

The fatty salmon sushi just melted in my mouth. I didn't know octopus could be that tender or that shiitake mushroom sushi would taste that interesting. The jack mackerel is pretty good too!

I love how there were no long lines when we entered. We were the only customers! Somehow, I don't know if I want them to become famous just because they might loose their chill vibe and authenticity like some Boracay restaurants did...but hey, they deserve the fame if only for their fresh and amazing food. Loved this place and will be back for more as soon as possible!

“Definitely the best restaurent in Boracay!!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

By far the best food in Boracay. Chef Andy's skill in sushi is just fantastic and one of the most friendly. At the same time chef is very demanding with the quality of the food severed, so do expect super fresh and nicely done sushi and sashimi. Will definitely visit again.

“Good sushi but not easy to find”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Service was excellent. Price is reasonable but I can see why they are not busy because price point is too high for Filipino tourists who make up majority of the Boracay visitors. There were three different sets for lunch and we ordered set b for 650 php and ended up very full. Good quality compared to other sushi places on the island.
