This place probably has the best ramen in Dipolog city. Their Tonkotsu ramen is to die for, and their gyoza is amazing too.The staff are very helpful and friendly.

Fantastic sunset view, acoustic band on weekends, and standard fare that you would expect to find in a Japanese restaurant though not as expensive. The food was great although the way the sashimi was sliced seemed a bit off. Great place of cocktails or a glass of wine to wind down at night.

Yes, it's the only Japanese Restaurant in the City. Everything here is marketed as 'The Best' but yeah, it is, since it's the only one here. The price is not right for the quality of food, their sashimi isn't that fresh, its very coooold when served. It's fresh though, fresh from the frig.

It's a cool little place on the top floor of D'Hotel. Perfect for grabbing some drinks. We tried their sashimi and it was ok. There's no restroom though, you need to get down to the lower floor if you wanna use the CR

A Japanese restaurant in dipolog--what else can you ask for! Fresh and still affordable, really cooked and fried well. I am just really glad there is a delicious Japanese restaurant in Dipolog, that itself made me really appreciate the place.

The place is cozy with live music. Price is a bit expensive in Dipolog standard. Their Margarita is sooo good I had 3 glasses of it, try it to believe it. :)

Let me just start by saying, I love Japanese food!! The food at this restaurant doesn't disappoint. I ordered several types of Sashimi and they were all fresh. Tempura is extra crunchy and delicious, not to mention the generous and plentiful servings of nearly everything our group ordered. I ate with a few other fellow travelers and their Filipino girl's.... More
