This hotel (Radisson Blu) Japanese restaurant does take out.

Reasonably priced sashimi and sushi that is fresh and well packed. Did not take too long with a 10 to 15 min waiting time.

Do consider including a chirashi on the menu.

Great tasting meal with no complaints. Friendly staff too.

Inept service, inauthentic, small portions, overpriced. Kept waiting for ages with no complimentary snacks to help pass the time and keep us moderately happy - another couple had to buy in poppadums from another of the restaurants as they’d been waiting for their teppanyaki experience for 45 minutes. I’m don’t know saki but judging by the quality of the house wine it was watered down as well. No complaints about the quality of main ingredients the steak and scallops were good but they are really stingy with the vegetable accompaniments which leaves a bad overall impression. Even with the entertainer app this was too expensive. This experience means we won’t bother trying any of their other restaurants.

I have only been here a handful of time but it is always top notch service and food. You can sit at the bar if you are getting take-away food or sit down at grill tables. The chefs are fun and interactive just like you would expect. The hibachi food is delicious but so is their sushi. The manager and staff is very attentive to their customers.

As a lover of sushi, I never waste an opportunity to try a new sushi place. As I stay often in the Radisson I tried it out recently and was quite underwhelmed.

First off, the service was excellent and the staff went out of their way to make me comfortable. Unfortunately, that's pretty much it for the good part of the report.

The sushi was almost flavorless and the rice was not crisp making the rolls rather uninspiring. I really could not distinguish any difference in flavor and I think this is because they do not use their fish optimally, leading to a bland soggy rice taste.

Add to that pretty exorbitant pricing and this is definitely not a joint I would recommend.
