Loved this fusion restaurant! Embarrasingly, none of our party could speak more than basic Spanish, so we struggeld with the menu. Luckily, the very helpful waiter came to our rescue and recommended a selection of ceviche to start and a selection of rolls to follow. We had no idea what to expect but loved the combinations. Fresh food, great flavours, techically very impressive with great attention to detail, and really interesting and delicious. I would definitely recommend and only wish I could find somewhere like this back home.

Really enjoyed this fusion restaurant in a great area of the city. The food is a blend of peruvian and Japanese - lots of creative dishes. Not a huge fan of mayonnaise with sushi or sauces but they worked. If not a fan, ask for them to leave it out. Restaurant had a really trendy vibe with lots of locals and a fantastic patio in the back. Excellent pisco sours. Recommended!

Great Nikkei food and lovely resturant. We like to come here as an affordable alternative to Osaka. We love the the rolls and ceviche. Hostesses are hit or miss, but the servers are usually very professional.

The food was average, at best. The service bad. There was only one another party at the restaurant and four waiters having fun at the bar could not provide sufficient service.
I had better food and service at fast food japanese restaurant in Denver. For less than half the price. Don't go there.

Good rolls, excellent Nikkei, tiraditos, sashimi and ceviche. It's a good and well balanced mix between Peruvian and Japanese food. Nice cocktail list and good wine selection.

Went there twice the same week, and definitely will go again.

Slightly expensive.
