Re-located this year in the yet to be completed Ambassador Hotel in central Kathmandu, this casual Japanese restaurant provides excellent dining. Many options are available and I found the sashimi and tempura prawns to be superb. Well worth a visit!

The sushi is really good. The meat and the sushi price is worth the taste. Most of the chefs are Japanese. The place is small but cute. The toilets are clean as well as the eating area.
