I was slightly worried at the start because we were last to arrive and this place is small and crowded. But they didn't forget us and indeed the service was excellent. The sushi and sashimi are delicious. We will return.

Lunch time was completely crowded. Sashimi and sushi were fresh and service was prompt. My Katsudon was a little tasteless though.

Food here taste pretty close as in Japan. I had Gyudon (Beef slice on top of rice bowl). Beef is very tender, but they serve with raw egg as in Japan, so be aware of it.

I went 3 time and I can only say that is the best Japanese I've ever tried! Fresh fish, enveloping flavor, perfect rice and smiling and solar chef, despite the heat and hectic work.Unique and unrepeatable experience. Price are proportionate to the quality. Recommended!

I went there for dinner after seeing a Michelin recommendation sticker on the door. The outside makes this restaurant look very normal. When I finally returned, I was surprised by how full it was, just 10 minutes after reopening for dinner. The sushi is a must try (if you sit at the bar, you get to see the chef make... More

A very small restaurant which requires booking if you are going in a group. Tight bookings due to limited private rooms upstairs. Lots of privacy if you are with friends which is great. Nothing posh and good if are dining alone too. For a small jap restaurant they have fresh sashimi with very good cut! Not chunky like other Chinese... More

We've visited Japan last year, and since then, the only restaurant we want to eat sushi in Luxembourg is at this place. Very authentic, absolutely fresh fish and prices are ok.

I am deeply impressed by the size and great variety of my assorted sashimi rice from the lunch menu, the restaurant is being very generous! The taste of the marinated rice can certainly be better. The salad dressing for the starter is bit too salty. The staff here are super friendly!

It's bigger on the inside!!! I went there with group of friends, and although the restaurant is present in Luxembourg for over 30 years, for me it was the first time. The food was excellent, high quality, freshly prepared by chef. And the service - friendly and entertaining. The place itself is easy to miss - tiny doors hide a... More
