    This meal was totally out of the ordinary. The team is very nice and helpful. The philosophy (very pure taste, the best products and very exclusive relationships with the suppliers) made me want to visit every supplier to meet them. The food is extraordinary and can not be described in a way that would give it justice. An unforgettable diner. Thank you so much.

    this was the very best experience! I took my fiancé here for his birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. I reserved the Kaiseki Cuisine Full Course at Chef's. Every dish was so tasty and the best sushi / food I have had in Japan so far! I highly highly recommend reserving a table here if you have the time. Everyone was so kind and the experience was unforgettable!!
