This is going to be the best Japanese restaurant in Tel aviv. No doubt about it. Ali Grosman knows so much about Japanese culture and food and that shows!
This is not a fancy place but an authentic Japanese where the chef is Japanese and they are serving a great variety of dishes.
Lots of Japanese ate here when we had dinner including staff from the Japanese embassy.
Great cold saki.
The best sushi we ever had any where - take the yellowtail nigiri!
They opened only a few weeks ago and the service was still a bit slow but we had time and the food was worth the wait.
We asked Ali Grosman the owner, to order the dishes for us and had an unforgettable experience, including tasting dishes we wouldn’t choose ourselves.
We will definitely be back!

A dinner made of many many small dishes! Most were amazing, others very good. Lots of different Japanese kitchens, a lot more than just sushi.
Service was exceptional !
Sitting is quite dense. And we got the table for only two hours. This was the only problem.

This was supposed to be the best dinner, my birthday’s dinner. My friends invited me to this one because they know that Japanese food is my favorite one. What a nightmare. We were waiting for simple sushi rolls 100 (!) minutes - one hour and forty minutes. We did have other dishes, but sushi was our main interest. After one hour when we complained about it, we got an answer that they were sorry but they have that night only one chef. After one hour and a half they “compensated “us with nuggets. Hello, we didn’t come to McDonald’s. The waiter was a very nice guy but very unprofessional one. He told us that the dishes were to share, but we got some very small one, like samples. They also gave us a desert OTH, but all we wanted at that time was to go!
