Chef Yoshio Imoto never ceases to amazing me with his impeccable presentation and quality food! I have said it before and will say it again, he is a Culinary Artist ! Every time I am there (which is usually weekly!)... he comes to the table and sits with us to explain his newest creations, his home made ice creams are... More

Saw the comments and tried it. 30 piece sushi and rolls, tempura and tofu. From the first bite I knew this was the real thing. Easily equals the best places in Los Angeles, much better then what we get in France. Great view over the river looking at Porto.

Great friendly service try the butter fish it was delicious. All the seafood was fresh and tasty . Tried the miso soup and fried vegetables with dipping sauce both were great. The 20 piece sushi platter was outstanding . Grilled prawns in a soy reduction was the best of all

We had eaten at another Japanese restaurant and left because it wasn't good, searched out this place right on the waterfront near all the Port Houses. It was amazing, greeted by free starters and a smile from the servers, sat opposite where the chef prepared the food only to see him prepare it with passion and detail, the results were... More

Very expensive with really bellow average quality! If you are passing by and want to enjoy the view, try some other restaurant in the area. Not even close to the quality of several other sushi restaurants in the City.

Go up to the terrace to enjoy the breathtaking view of the river and town, but don't eat there . If you choose the menu , you will start with a dried fish , or more precisely , a handful of salt with some morsels of dried fish very near of its sell-by date ( hence the salt ) .... More
