Booked this restaurant well in advance. It was full on Saturday night. Service could have been better but seemed like the staff were truly run off their feet.
We ordered some sake, the chef special sashimi set, Wagyu beef on a 'Himalayan' style hot stone grill, prawn tempura and soft shell crab tempura. We asked for the sashimi to start and the rest to come later. We were warned of a 30 min wait for the sashimi but didn't mind while we sipped on sake. When it arrived the sashimi was excellent - fresh and well prepared. The best I have had in Europe and better than anywhere in the UK.
We loved the Wagyu - it came sizzling, and after you leave it to roast on the sides for half a minute each, the result is a piece of melt in the mouth delight. We sat at the bar at the sashimi chef gave us a piece of Toro to roast, such a treat! While the prawn tempura was well cooked, the soft shell crab was a disappointment - just was not meaty enough and a bit dry.
The bill came to just over 200 euros including sake. One of the best Japanese dining experience I have had (I've tried UK and Asia). We will go back again!
