Located at the west of Oslo, this restaurant is priced like the rest of Oslo west. Most patrons are working professionals (i.e. you will hardly see tourists there). Featuring fusion foods, this restaurant offer good variety of foods ranging from sashimi to warm dishes like grilled lobster. The decoration is simple, yet classy, of course it could be a tad brighter so you know where your chopsticks are going, but guess that's what they called "ambience". Foods were great, we tried the Mojito Sashimi, Hamachi Tataki, Truffle Maki and the Crispy Duck. We were quite impressed by the refreshing taste of the mojito sauce and rich flavour of the truffle maki, and the duck was not dry at all! Alcohol selection was good too (but pricey). The restaurant was pretty busy so service was pretty standardized. Overall, it's a great dining option in this little city.

I would give this top score, but a these prices you expect "that little extra" that you unfortunately don't get. The food is good, but when you can get curries at a third of the price this should be of another standard which unfortunately it isn't. Still highly recommended

If you enjoy Asian fusion food, this is definitely the place to go in Oslo. Situated at Frogner, the restaurant is inviting both in architecture and warmth. The service was good, the food excellent (and enough) and beautiful presented. Not cheap, but worth it.

From the moment you enter this beautiful restaurant, you feel being really good taken care of.
Discreet, friendly, smiling.
The service is esquisit.
The surroundings are delicate decorated. Smooth colour palette. The food is stunning, both in favour and it's presentation. The wine list is great, but imported Asian Beer can also go well with this kind of food, maybe even better.
One my best dining experiences in Oslo ever.

If you love Sushi, this is the place to go in Oslo NB, Not central. Old villa with history.
Food excellent, but too slow. A lot of waiting time and they only gave lime for the water for half of our group. A bit sloppy. Food could also have been presented better. Popular and expencive. You need to book.
