The place is awesome! This is where you get to savor super fresh sashimi, especially the renowned squid of Fukuoka. Lunch menu may not offer a great variety of dishes, it I think it’s best to choose what the restaurant has offered: well balanced set menus. Fresh ingredients and super sumptuous. The prices are quite attractive too.


Excellent place right by Hakata Station to sample some of the famous Fukuoka squid. A little on the pricey side, but the interior and service is higher-end. Has a large live fish tank, so you know it’s super fresh.


The sashimi quality was good, but we are very difficult to communicate with their waiter. They don’t know English .
