Went there on the recommendation of the hotel concierge and we weren’t disappointed.
It’s a modern attractive space, although the seating isn’t that comfortable.
The sushi was fresh and very good and the sea bass entree was excellent.
Pricey, but worth a visit.

Quiet and nice place. Friendly staff.
The food was... delicious!!
For dessert, we ordered a pistachio Crème Brûlée... we drool over just remembering it!
We really like Japanese food, and without a doubt, we will repeat!

The food:
My girlfriend, who speaks hewrit asked for sushi with raw (not cooked in any way) salmon. The waiter recommended 3 different sushi rools.
When we got the we saw that every roll had been seared or fried.
After this we ordered salmon sashimi and said to the waiter that we must have misunderstood eachother. And that I would eat what we had, and that my girlfriend was looking to get the raw sashimi.
When the sashimi came I was placedon pieces of lemon. So some of it was like ceviche.
We gave up, at that point.

The seating:
There is few private tables.
We had booked a private table in advance.
We got seated in a very small middle table. Up against the wall. With no pillows for your bag.
The tables are so close, that your almost feel like your part in other peoples conversation.
I have never tried to be seated in a good restaurant with my bag to a stone wall, and are not going to do it again!

Overall not anywhere near the experience we we're looking for!
