Great place for lunch, presentation and food was amazing. I had the teriyaki and sushi zen combo and it was fresh and tasty. Highly recommended if you enjoy good quality Japanese.

The cab driver had found it hard to find the place with the result we ended paying more to him. The interior had a totally different set up from other Japanese restaurants. I liked the drum roll with which the occasion was announced for each party if any. Very theatrical effect, quite something new. There was also an event when... More

Loved this place, Japanese food was presented so well and so tasty. Warning, the frozen Sake that turns into a slushy is highly addictive but a perfect compliment to the amazing food. Yum yummy xxx

My bento box came in its own little castle with wheels with rice hidden in one tier and teriyaki chicken in another. What a cool way to eat and it was all... More

I'm shocked this place has such good reviews! Aside from presentation this place lacks in every way. The food is pretty but very bland and under seasoned and small. The service was horrendous! If it wasn't the waitresses first night she should be ashamed. We had a table of 8 and the waitress only took orders from 5 before leaving.... More
