These are a must try - the buckwheat risotto, the purple potato gnocchi, and for desert, the black sesame mouse..... OMG! Delightful!

Excellent Japanese restaurant in the Arts District. Pricey but it's worth the splurge once in a while. Perfect spot for a romantic dinner or for an expensive expense-account meal. A foodie must-see in Dallas.

We ordered the large Omakase dinner at $70 per person, after fist settling for the more affordable version. But we quickly realized how ridiculous the food was so we asked the waitress to upgrade our order... :) TIP: Make sure to order AT LEAST one order the White Seaweed Salad... You will thank us for it... We still dream about it...

They have an awesome rooftop lounge too.

Five of went there last night for a dinner at 630. It was not busy yet we were told we could not get a table as they expected to be booked by 8 pm. We ate in a pleasantly decorated bar area that was quiet enough to conduct our business. The waiter had a hard time understanding our questions and, based on what was served, understanding our requests. Drinks were on the small portion size as were the portions of food. The hot food was warm, not hot. The tempura rolls were disappointing. The soba noodles were excellent but the porcini meat sauce flavorless. The baby spinach with walnut sauce was good but the other vegetables also were without flavor. We definitely will not return.

My husband and I found this by mistake but it is now our favorite place to go. The service is exceptional and the food is delicious. We were waiting for a short while and the waitress apologized and brought us the white seaweed salad on the house(we didn't feel it was that long). This was definitely worth it. The atmosphere is romantic even though its usually busy but it still feels like your personal space. The decor is beautiful and they have the bar separated from the main dining- definitely a plus. Everything is authentic and the chef.always has something special. Definitely a treat

I travel quite frequently and would say that this place is very authentic and a gem. The soba noodles are the best I have ever tasted and everything was beyond my expectations. I would recommend this place to my closes friends and associates. Thanks for the great experience.
