My sister and me found this little gem as it was right around the corner from the hotel we were staying at. Good food, nice service.

After we got the menu, it took 20mins for the waiter to take our order. It did take another 50mins before we got our food; way too long for a sushi restaurant. We could see many (too many?) take-away orders going out before they took...More

This Japanese restaurant seems pretty small when you look at it from the outside. But in the back of it you will find a room that can contains between 20 and 25 people. The dining room is sober, like you would expect from a Japanese...More

We come here quite often. Although we always go for sake, maguro & sakura roll we've tried more things of their long menu and everything is very good. Service is also nice, they are friendly and treating you with a big smile :)

Not the best or most special sushi in town but excellent value for money. A favorite of mine. A bit noisy, though.

Visited the place with friends in search of a nice sushi sashimi meal, recommended by many. Entered the relatively small restaurant, waited a while to be seated in spite of reservations made. Sushi prepared by asian natives, did not really look japanese. While waiting could...More
