Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is really nice Japanese restaurant. The food was great as was the service. Don’t miss the scallops as a starter - superb! The tofu teppanyaki was also fantastic. I’m coming back!

We dine in this restaurant as part of family celebration. Food is amazing: Sushi Dragonball is not to miss. So tastey and delicate, it melt in your mouth. I took Tuna Steak and it was great too. Atmosphere is pleasant with light background music. Service...was fast and polite. One feedback / improvement: Food has been served all in once. Would be great to stagger to enjoy in full the experience. Other than that all great. Really recommendedMore

Fantastic find right next to our hotel! I was put off by the menu poster when walking past but my other half suggested we try it! The food was gorgeous! So nice that we went back on our second night! My favourite were the tapas...dishes. Food and service was excellent - would highly recommend! Prices really reasonable too! Lovely wines!More

I live in the area and frequent the spot. Their food is just incredible and is great value! Staff are always wonderful and the restaurant itself is beautiful. One of the few places where food travels well as a takeaway too. The katsu curry is...especially gorg.More

Amazing food, amazing staff & amazing service. Best find of the year! We tried the tempura prawns, tempura veg, gyoza & the wasabi prawns. The wasabi prawns - mouth watering with the perfect pitch of heat. We went back the second night & enjoyed it...even more. Value for money it can’t be beat. Special thanks to amazing staffMore

This place looks pretty unassuming from the outside and could easily be missed, especially with a similarly named restaurant just around the corner. But when I compared menus and online reviews, I knew that this was the place to dine. Situated right next door to...the Mespil Hotel (where we were staying), we were greeted promptly and shown a comfortable (albeit small!) table and given our menus. The online menu goes into a little more detail about the dishes, so is well worth perusing before your visit (if you're unfamiliar with Japanese food) . We chose a selection of dishes and we weren't disappointed with any of them. The ingredients tasted fresh and were served beautifully - what's not to like! Definitely worth a visit if you want to taste authentic Japanese dishes in Dublin.More

Honestly can't rave enough about this place. From the Sushi to the Gyozo to the the tepinyaki, everything tasted fresh and delicious. And very very well priced. If you order the Tuna tepinyaki, Be prepared for a feast. Just delicious!

Walked by this relatively new restaurant on a rainy Monday evening and decided to give it a go. Hadn’t heard anything about it at all. My goodness, what a find! Lovely atmosphere and staff and simply wonderful food. The menu is comprehensive but easy to...understand. So much choice, it was difficult to decide what to have! We were delighted with our food but everything that came out of the kitchen looked amazing. Great value for money too. 5 star experience.More

Was desperately trying to find somewhere to eat at 9pm on a Sunday evening and this place saved us. Not only that, it also proved to be a bit of a hidden gem (by hidden I mean it doesn’t currently have a lot of reviews)....The interior was very smart, with nice Japanese inspired touches that included 2x large depictions of parts of The Great Wave painting. And the food… wow! I had a tofu teriyaki dish that was incredibly tasty and ridiculous value for money considering it came with stir fry veg, miso soup and a pot of rice. The service was excellent and friendly, and there was a nice relaxed atmosphere too. I can’t recommend it enough really!More
