Chef is very friendly, he tried to explain to me each of the dishes he served for the night. The food is truly amazing, I really appreciate how they keep changing the rice so the temperature is just right for the sushi.

Thank you for the amazing night. And I love the mini uni sushi you made for my lulu pig toy, it’s so cute!


This was a genuinely wonderful experience! I came for the dinner course and got to try so many lovely pieces of sushi. I know there are a couple of reviews that say that this place discriminates against foreigners. I really didn't feel that at all. You should definitely make a reservation beforehand as they don't let walk-ins. The chef and his assistant were extremely kind and always answered when I asked what fish was being served! The interior was very beautiful and overall I left feeling satisfied and happy!


Superb omakase experience. Great value. Great service. I do wish a bit of presentation about each dish would be included but that's a small gripe. Other than that, the courses are quite great and near impeccable.
