Had dinner here last night as it is next door to my accommodation. Food was lovely, restaurant itself is quite nice and quaint. Would definitely dine here again.

It is no longer Japanese food. The sashimi was ridiculously cut. The fish was not fresh and tasty. Terrible experience.

Hashis are not re-used.. little nhac Menus are not clean. Overall service was poor. We weren't asked for a second beer. The most important, the food was below average. Big pieces of sashimi and sushi with poor technique.

The food is great, the price is correct, the service is fast (expect to wait a little longer for sushis, but the result is worth it), and they have a good choice of sakes. A place to remember

Tasty authentic Japanese food at very reasonable prices. We had sushi, sushimi-don and okinomiyoki - all were very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a few of the small plates first -- the mushrooms were lovely, the tofu salad also very tasty with an excellent dressing.. I didn't care for the texture of the octopus balls, but my husband loved them. I got very good advice on...More
