Had the Omakase and the 9piece set for both of us. Probably the best tuna sashimi i have eaten (i dare say even better than the ones we tried in Osaka at kurumon ichiba market!) Ended with nice birthday surprise from the chefs!

Starts with sashimi and cooked stuff and ends with sushi. The chutoro (semi fatty tuna) is the best I ever tasted!

The fish are fresh, the uni rice with caviar is excellent. The service is ok( some younger waitress are a little unsure. Ambience is same as any sushi place. Prices are higher than Japan.
