“Not much to it for the price charged”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Felt like Japanese food for dinner while we were walking around seminyak and stumbled upon this place on Jl. Laksamana.

I felt uncertain about this restaurant. The Sushi itself was quite good and the yakitori was delicious, but the service was less than attentive and seemed like we were bothering their night (mind you it was only about 7pm) by coming into the restaurant. The only light in this place is the japanese owner/manager who was incredibly friendly and very courteous.

i'd definitely tell you to stay as far away as possible from one of their scallop dish, i forgot what it is called exactly but it was like sauteed chopped scallops to pieces and served on a shell...after a couple of try, it tasted horrible and incredibly 'fishy' and also it just smelled a bit off, left a bad taste in my mouth and felt guilty that i couldn't even finish the dish. It was quite horrible.

“great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

We went there for 2 consecutive nights (and our parents and in-laws went again for another night). At first we were quite worried, because its ranking on tripadvisor is quite low. So we were very amazed when we found out the food was that lovely. The Korean BBQ sets were great. And the ribeye steak my husband ordered was amazing, even the garlic fried rice that came with the set was wonderful! And the food was not expensive at all! We all love our food. But do avoid the wasabi cheesecake. It tasted awful.

“Get Your Meat On”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

This is where I go to get my meat on. I order the kalbi, beef spareribs, have them grill it for me, and eat it Korean style wrapped in lettuce with the miso paste sauce. Soooo good. Everyone I take here is always always happy with the kalbi, even my non-asian-food-loving friends.

“We were ill!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

Not sure if it was the sushi or the noodle soup that was not on the menu but was prepared upon request - both my teenage kids were violently sick after eating here.

“Our favorite restaurant in bali...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2011

We stayed at the Oberoi for our honeymoon and ate at this place 3 nights out of 9. It was amazing. Just enjoy the favorable exchange rate and order everything you want (you won't leave hungry!). The rooftop is great and very nice ambiance. All around this is a great place...definitely worth checking out.
