They provide only one course menu. Some plate are buffet style. Some sounds Japanese menu, like tempra. But it's flitter. Since only one course menu, everybody gets same plate, then everybody have new plate. So dinner takes long.

I loved this place - the fish was as fresh as I have ever eaten, in particular the carpaccio and the deep fried fish which had the lightest batter ever. I went on buffet night which basically means you get everything on offer. Obviously the...More
