One of the best japanese restaurants I know. The food was awesome and the best way to taste all the good dishes is ask for the suggestion from the employee. If you're lucky you'll find Marcelo. A fantastic and very nice man that give us...More

It is an interesting place, with decent options for us. Usually we find Japanese restaurants with lots of limitation for vegetarian options, and often times some members in our group (we usually go in group of 6 to 10 pax), don't like the taste, so...More

It started well with the salads and Appetizers but was really disappointing with the sushi and makis

Friend's birthday brunch. Didn't start well as we had to wait outside for 20 mins with their ridiculous 2-at-a-time entry policy which they seem to revel in under the pretense of 'exclusivity'. Food is amazing. Starters selection is brilliant and great theatre too with all...More

The restaurant decor is chic and sophisticated. The food was tasty if somewhat expensive for what you get compared to other restaurants. The service needs work. We were instantly hit with upsell on water and edamame. It then took a long time for us to...More
