This restaurant reopened in another location at Manuel María Palacios 121 y Remigio Crespo, diagonal to banco del pichincha. On their Facebook page, they show amazing pictures of tasteful looking sushis, but the reality is far from that. We haven't seen on the other tables...More

I, think everything was pretty good. I really enjoyed. The food was delicious. The only con is that it's kind of expensive.

Small restaurant with a very limited menu for entrees. Staff seem somewhat untrained & dishes don't look quite like they're pictured on the menu. Best bet . . .stick to the sushi !
