we had dinner with my 2kids of 13 and 14 years old and my partner to celebrate a birthday and we enjoyed the sushi and the nice atmosphere in the restaurant. The service is very nice as well.

Lovely Asian fusion food. Simple menu and really well done. Cocktails were really well done even if they did take quite a while to come due to the number of people ordering them!

Good food, terrible service. I didn’t recieve all that I ordered. When I asked about it I still didnt get it. At the end I was charged twice for this dish. The place was noisy as well.

The seafood bento box was amazing, the tempura light and crispy, and the oysters of the day were a fresh taste of the sea. If we could have, we would have booked a second dinner. You must get reservations, this is a very popular place,...and rightfully so. The noise level can be intense, and might be too high for some. But the food and cocktails make this a must visit destination—and the price makes this a steal.More

As expected based on reviews and price range. Had a typical sushi dinner with mixed sashimi to start. Fresh and delicious. A couple of Makis which were tasty. Spicy White fish was really nice. Miso 3 ways to finish of the experience. Would have liked...to try some of their cocktails, but save that for next time. Small and intimate restaurant so it can get a bit loud.More

The prices are a bit high, but for fresh sushi with excellent quality it is justified. We tried some very good variations of sushi we did not find somewhere else. Also good vegetarian and vegan options. The dessert was not our favourite, but that may...be a matter of taste. All in all: yummy food, with friendly service and also nice drinks!More

Good food and service. Prices are high but so is the quality. The desserts were a bit strange. The room acoustics were very poor, wich made it diffucult to understand the waitress and each other.

Very fresh, great tastning sashimi. Their California rolls are a must. Sticks are very good too. Tempura nothing out of the ordinary, though. Friendly service.
