Have been here with some friends and all of the food was delicious and the staff very welcoming and friendly. From the edamame, homemade gyoza, pork ramen and especially the mapo tofu was very tasty. Highly recommended.

Friendly service. Good food. I had tempura and it was delicious. Good location close to market hall in the old town.

After living in Japan for almost ten years and fifty subsequent trips back and forth I feel qualified to state emphatically that this IS authentic in its entirety, and that the food I had was of excellent quality. I’ve had better Japanese food of this...sort but even in Japan I would have had no reason to complain. I was equally impressed by the friendly staff I met. One young lady has worked here for five years, and the other for two years. Both remain enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. The environment, rustic and simple, is also entirely authentic. Made me feel as if I were back in a small neighborhood eatery in Japan. Please consider ignoring the comments of any who would proclaim the restaurant inauthentic. I detest “faux” Japanese. As for the owner, I didn’t get to meet him but I’m assured he is the same friendly guy many reviewers have mentioned. He would have to be a pretty nice guy to retain such friendly, capable and helpful staff (two of whom speak pretty good English and some Japanese, as well). Absolutely recommended.More

So this little spot doesn't serve sushi but the rest of the Japanese cuisine is pretty much very well covered. The food was great, every dish well flavoured and I almost forgot I was in the hustle and bustle of Hoi An. The owner was...an absolute gentleman and took time at the end of the meal to show us a little origami. I mean how great is that?More

We decided to check this place out while we were in Hoi An just to mix it up from the Vietnamese food for a change. We ended up coming back here twice as the food (and the service) was fantastic. The Takoyaki, Karaage, and the...Tonkatsu were some of the best I’ve ever had!More

We ate here twice because we couldn’t get enough of the food. Absolutely delicious. The best food we have eaten in Vietnam. The owner and staff were very friendly and service was spot on.

We came here as we'd read quite a lot of good reviews. I would definitely back them all up. The food was very nice and all round a nice atmosphere. Very authentic feel to the place and it's very nice to sit inside away from...the busy streets of old town sometimes! Amazing food too :DMore

A small, quaint Japanese restaurant in Hoi An that was a pleasant surprise for my wife and I. I had the pork ramen and yakitori while my wife had the miso soup and agedashi tofu. Everything was delicious and the presentation was impressive. The yakitori...was great, obviously charcoal grilled. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food came out in a timely manner. It is a nice little oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the Hoi An streets.More

The food was so good. Everything tasted like in Japan. Very good service as well! We loved it! Try the Goyza and the Ramen.
