Description
An authentic Japanese restaurant offering an array of delicious choices, using the freshest local seafood and highest quality local produce, from the sushi and sashimi bar, the teppanyaki or the a la carte menu.

At the sushi and sashimi bar you can watch your chef prepare your meal using only the freshest ingredients. Enjoy the entertainment of the teppanyaki grill where you are almost part of the cooking experience, or for a quieter meal choose to dine from the a la carte menu and enjoy traditional flavours and service.
