“excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

We arrived mid afternoon so the restaurant was a bit understaffed and this meant the service was a bit slow however we were warned that this would be the case. No problem, the restaurant has pleasant decor and air conditioning, a nice escape from the afternoon sun and time to sip on a beer or two.

The menu is huge, all of the dishes we had were great. I really enjoyed deep fried nori rolls; yeah sounds a bit weird but they were sensational. Free transport is offered in the local area, they are about 500m up the road from the Bintang supermarket.

“Possibly best Japanese in Ubud for the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

Very good sushi and salads; very pleasant staff. Some of the pricing is irrational: a two-portion sushi dinner is 2-1/2 times the prices of a one-portion sushi dinner. But the food was very good, reliable (have been there many years ago and days ago ... always good), fresh. One of our favorite places.

“Disappointed with Service, but Tasty Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

Ordered a miso soup to go on my way to a massage next door. When I asked how much the soup was, 2 of the waiters looked at me, then looked at each other, and then the one waiter pointed to something on a screen behind the computer and the other shook his head yes. They charged me 20,000 RP for the miso soup. I thought the exchange seemed odd so I looked at the price on the menu and it said 15,000 RP. I asked the server about the difference and she said to-go order costs more so I left it at that. The next day my husband was craving sushi so he stopped in, order a couple of rolls and a miso soup to-go. This time they charged us the price in the menu (15,000 RP) for the soup. Food was tasty, but we were disappointed and annoyed that an established restaurant would overcharge us. We've traveled extensively around SE Asia so we're used to getting overcharged or quoted high prices based upon being tourists, but never at an established restaurant such as this. I hope the servers enjoyed their 5,000 RP tip! :)
