The place is an average. Service is slow and waiter are sometimes confused with the orders. Drinks like Pisco Sour are medium good. The wine chard is not the best, but they have some good wines. Sadly rolls with salmon are not good, because the fish was not fresh and they had too much cream cheese. That situation is for... More

Nice restaurant. It's a simple place. The staff is friendly... Big menu. I took the first menu. That was a big plate with mixed sushi. The salmon was really bad. It's a good restaurant to try something else.
