I have been dying to try this restaurant for a long time but heard it was quite expensive. Finally tried it last August went to Shanghai - IFC Mall. Restaurant looks small from the outside but quite spacious inside, we were seated in this nice big booth (good for 8 pax). I'm a japanese food fanatic and MAKIs I had here were the best tasting MAKIs I had in my life! Order : AMY (top choice) - as I love avocados in maki, Motorolla (2nd placer) , Butterfly (3rd). We also had cod fish miso and tempura (giant prawns!). Love it!!!!

Value for Money: 5 of 5. Definitely worth the trip!

Very popular with the expat and visitors for Japanese food in Shanghai. This is the one in Puxi and there is another outlet in the IFC in Pudong. I have eaten here many times and always go back becaues of the great selection available and the quality. Sushi and Sashimi are great and thet roll selection is excellent. My favourite is Spicy Tuna. Quite expensive compared to other places but well worth a visit. Make sure to reserve as seating is limited and always full.

This place is over valuated among the Shanghai expats. Can be considered as show off. Portions are very small and snobish, higly priced and do not provide value for money. Prepare to go for burger and beer before back home.

We went to the IFC location. Chic interior and good quality of the california style sushi like you would expect from a Hatsune. Nice stop for lunch while out shopping in the IFC mall.

The food is great, service average, interior décor well used and could use maintenance. Try the spicy tuna roll. Don't take the death by wasabi one because you will not survive. Really, I had a near death experience.
