The sushi is good, but not exceptional. For something different, head to the mains: The Alaskan Night is interesting, if a little salty. Crab, salmon and (drumroll) a scallop, which is the highlight of this little seafood platter. The duck and noodles is a substantial...More

We ate here our first night in Cape Town. We had tempura prawns and a dish I can't remember the name of but it was with prawns, tofu, crab et cetera. It was delicious! I also had oysters for the first time. Not a favorite...More

The atmosphere leads your mind to Japan - it is very quiet and dimmed. The menu is quite authentic - and you really have to have some kind of sushi-knowledge to know what the individual dishes are. I had a splendid fish of the day.
