We order sushi, one chicken tepanyaki, one arrachera tepanyaki and one yakimeshi. The sushi and drinks came rigth away, but the food preparation on our table was slow. I do recommend, but only for the taste.

Got here for an early lunch when it was still quite empty. That changed fast- the locals tell me you can't get a table at this place. The food was just amazing- we had what seemed to be everything- sushi, ceviche and more and more-...More

We were a big party, and they accommodated us perfectly. It’s a fine dining restaurant but to be honest the prices are just fair!! And the food… we ordered different dishes to the center and was fabulous. Specially our favorite by far was the Tempura...More

the senses thanks to the art decó architecture and
high quality gourmet cuisine found here.
