The restaurant has a lovely ambience and the service is attentive and friendly but the prices ( for both the food and the wine) are exorbitant. The food is average. For example I had the seared tuna which was a small portion and very salty. Another party had the curried chicken which was like a soup with bits of chicken... More

Thin sashimi, few food and very expensive! Unfortunately I will not come back. I paid almost R1500 for two Sakes, one combo of sashimi very thin and one tempura prawn. The ambient is nice, but don't go hungry at all.

Probably the best Japanese restaurant in Cape Town. The sushi is particularly good. Very fresh, lots of variety with interesting choices. Highly recommended.

I have been several times and have nothing but good to report. You have their attention from the minute you arrive until you leave. Beautiful food and a great atmosphere. Cant wait to go back but be sure to make reservations - they're extremely popular!

This is not a regular sushi place, but more a Japanse style restaurant. They offer some sushi, but more other dishes. We had miso soup as starter, this was one of the best miso soups I ate in my life. The soup was full with mushrooms and soja. The handroll with crab was good, crab was not really fresh, but... More

Last night I was euphoric at the experience of this restaurant. I travel extensively and classify myself as an experienced ' food ' journalist amongst my other Showbiz areas. So I often arrive slightly jaded and with too many expectations. This didn't disappoint in the slightest . In fact I was blown away by the freshness of the fish, the... More

We were staying locally and fancied sushi, this was the closes to our guest-house according to TripAdvisor. We turned up without a booking and they were able to seat us, we even got a room pretty much to ourselves. We started with cocktails - highly reccomend the dirty ninja saketini! We then had tempura scallops with miso and the tempura... More

A silly pretence for real Japanese food. Tiny portions of poor quality at exorbitant prices. Best avoided
