It's a lovely place (little hidden from the main road).Good ambience. Nice quiet place.
Food was really good. Loved all the dishes. Presentation was also beautiful. A definite recommendation. The staff was very courteous.
We were staying in the Icon Hotel, so we had dinner on our first night. We enjoyed the chance to have decent Oriental food nearby, and visited a second time. The name is a bit misleading. It is Japanese, of course, and they do sushi...and other Japanese food, but it is more of a pan-Asian restaurant.
The first time we concentrated on Thai food. The vegetarian tom yum soup and som tam (papaya salad) very very good as was the crispy tofu with red peppers. We were brought one wrong dish, an exotic vegetable rice dish, but it was pretty good so we kept it. It wasn't 100 percent Thai, but near enough and we enjoyed the flavours. Portions were generous and we didn't have room for dessert.
The next time we had learnt our lesson, and skipped the starters. The very amiable (and able) Korean chef came to chat with us, recommended some dishes and advised us how he could adapt dishes to make them suitable for vegetarians. We had the Burmese khao suey, complete with an array of condiments - not as spicy as the Northern Thai version, but delectable nevertheless. We also had pan fried garlic noodles which were much tastier than I had expected. This time we tried their special Hibachi fried ice cream, which was good but not outstanding, maybe I had expected too much.
They do some fabulous variations on cocktails. I had a pomegrenade and basil mojito, and a tangerine and lime one, both a bit unusual but very good. They also have quite decent Indian wine by the glass.
Service was not that polished, but still very good. Prices were what you'd expect in a fairly upmarket restaurant, INR2000 and INR2800 (that was with more drinks). Decor was modern but quite modest.More
Maybe my expectations were high or my excitement was overflowing with the prospect of authentic Japanese cuisine in our Desi Chandigarh . The entrance, lights and all are fine but the interior ambience is disappointing , it is like an area carved out of desperation....Nothing Japanese in the ambience, neither the service . The food was edible but again if you have tried Japanese food earlier than you will be dissatisfied and disappointed !! One corner has been reserved for the live chef counter, which is a welcome addition and something unique .
Better to take your family for some good Chinese food if you have the oriental urge . The food presentation and serving was also nothing special to write about . Routine dishes like the Pan fried noodles and teriyaki chicken can be tried .More
A part of the Icon hotel this is a not very large place in central Chandigarh. It has a modern.unAsian decor and a wide menu. It has a teppanyaki facility which seemed unutilised.
We tried the tom yum and tom kha soup varieties which were...good. The kung pao chicken was tasty and served in a potato basket. The fish in chinese sauce was good too. The jakka noodles and fried rice were passable.the chinese greens were a large melange without much flavour.More
