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.

We showed up tonight excited to eat some highly rated Japanese food. I love sushi. Unfortunately, we never got the chance. While there were only three tables that were occupied, we sat quietly for 15-minutes while several servers passed us by seemingly making sure they...didn’t make eye contact. Sure, I could of spoken up and gotten their attention, but this is a test I like to use. If you can’t notice that a couple is sitting mid restaurant without even a watering front of them for 15 minutes, I don’t want to eat there. When someone finally did notice, she came over and looked at us blankly. We explained how long we had waited and she said “what do you want?” That was it. We were out and we recommend you pass them by.More

I like the food here I often get takeaways and I sometimes sit in. The food is always good and I am always happy after eating it.

What a find. We had a fantastic dinner last night. Certainly up there with the best we’ve had and that’s a lot, including in Japan. Staff were courteous and efficient, decor/ambience was smart casual Japanese style and, most importantly, every single dish we saw leaving...the kitchen looked fantastic. Prices were very fair and we loved it so much we’ve just been back for lunch! Perfect.More

Our favourite restaurant in Limerick. A really varied menu that has something for everyone. The food is always fresh and everything we have tried has been delicious! Lots of options for people that might not be into sushi too! Excellent value, friendly staff and always...five star food! Can't wait to go back!More

Terrible service, let me tell you what happened. First the ladies there directly thrown the spoon in front of me and got me the feeling like I am the begger for the food.

This is a €7.50 portion of side noodles when ordering for delivery Terijaki beef used to come with a side of rise and miso soup and that's gone too. Maybe it's time to consider other places like saruka. Herd that's nice

A nice lovely sushi bar slash restaurant. Great service, absolutely marvelous authentic sushi and Tonkatsu ramen. I brought my nephew there to introduce him to sushi and asked waitress to recommend the set that would cover the most options and offer different flavors. She completely...understood and was extremely helpful in her recondition. Long story short: this was a great experience. Highly recommended!More

We booked a table for 3 at 9pm on Saturday. Unfortunately we were rushed from the moment we sat down at our table. The rushing mostly came from the manager (maybe owner) who pushed us to order because the "kitchen was closing" at 9:20 (even...though the restaurant advertised that it didn't close until 10:30).if this wasn't enough at the eend (10:10) the front door was left open to get us out of the restaurant early.....or so it seemed. I was really disappointed with this attitude /service and won't be returning. The food was okay but the constant pay and leave attitude means that I couldn't say how good it really was. Although in the past I found the food good.More

We visit this restaurant again and again and while not cheap you have to spend for the good stuff now and again. Any lover of JApenese food would love the place. COVID regs all in place. Great service and, speaking as someone who has lived...in Japan and eaten in very good places there, it would give any good place in Osaka a very good run for it's money.

Had a nice quiet lunch here. Good very tasty norimaki. Good spicy tuna roll (sorry we ate it before taking a picture :) ). Tasty beef Don and misu soup. Very nice staff. Salmon sashimi could be better and fatter although is was fine. Dessert...can improve ice cream too sweet and couldn't feel the green tea. The presentation was nice. I recommend trying this place especially it reopened today! Good luckMore

Worst customer experience of my life In his restaurant tonight . Paid over 80 euro for my delivery which didn’t turn up and they shouted at me when I notified them of same . It was on Uber Eats platform which I tried for first...time as I order regularly from this restaurant on another service I drove in to try find the delivery rider and then decided to go to restaurant in case the food was dropped back there . Outrageous attitude by restaurant and washed their hands of the matter as it was Ubers problem not theirs !! They don’t seem to consider Uber eats as selling to their customers on the UBer platform !! Never again . Shame because we’ve always had a reasonable experience up to now . Guess customers are plentiful , hope it lasts . 80 euro down no food , hungry and pissed off 😠 I even offered to pay again and they could refund me when and if Uber paid them . Absolutely no chance even though I explained I was a regular . This lady just didn’t care . What a massive disappointment and what a horrible attitude from the lady who runs this restaurant .More
