“One of the best restaurants in Makati serving Japanese food”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

Food quality and price, service and attention to detail, ambience and decor are commendable. Personal recommendations: book the farthest tatami room (the view of the rock/flower garden inspires peace and harmony), order oinari, pumpkin tofu, ebi tempura, sweet camote tempura and saba. Next time, we will try coffee jelly or sake ice cream. My friend and I chatted past 3pm (the lunch session is 11:30am-2:30pm) but the waitstaff kindly allowed us to stay.

“The best!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

I found this little tripadvisor card they gave me so now i remember to give them a review. Yes! From the service to the food, everything went perfectly (as i expected) i love this hotel and this restaurant! They have a very delicious and very nice presentation of food esp. the sashimi boat with the dramatic effect on it. Like wow, worth it! Btw thanks to all the attendants they were very lovely and i dont even have to get their attention because they already know if i need anything. Really chuffed to try this before going to Japan for a few days.

“Japanese Goodness and more.”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

The restaurant itself has a very calm and spacious ambiance. The food and anything offered here iare not just worth it ,but ar e top quality with every single dish rich in taste. The employees as well render great service specially ms. Aprily and ms. Jerica. They know the most recommended choice and accomodate you in anyway they can.. Over all this restaurant is certainly very satisfying and worth every single cent.

“Good food, excellent service”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

This is one of the four restaurants in this 5-star hotel. I came here with friends for the Happy Hour Buffet offering sashimi, sushi and grilled fish/meat and vegetables accompanied by free flowing sake (hot or cold) and local beer. The quality of the food was perfect as I expected it from any of Dusit Thani's outlets. This hotel has substantially improved since G.M. Alex Willats took over some 18 months ago. Needless to mention that the name of Executive Chef Christian stands for top quality on your plate.
