excellent small dishes and deeply underrated place. i can guarantee this restaurant would have gone viral where i'm from.

love their modern interpretation of quintessential japanese dishes, such as perfectly and neatly cut okonomiyaki, nicely seasoned octopus (juxtaposed with sea grapes), even the chicken tsukune was updated with minced chicken meat mixed with glutinous rice with a caramelised miso paste slathered over. i've had cream cheese pickles elsewhere so it's not new but still a competent accompaniment. i also love the lotus with prawn
paste (somewhat like a menbosha prawn toast) as well as their freshly made red bean dorayaki whose sweetness is cleverly given a fresh lift with slices of pineapple also sandwiched within. who would have thought we can tempura figs and it would end up like fried lil bombs of fig jam?!

service is careful and discreet. the restaurant was not busy but staff kept bustling around and made sure our needs are well tended to.


You should try their “teppan yaki” style “dorayaki” sandwich with a seasonal fruits.


The store has a stylish interior and many young staff. The staff were all very considerate and made me feel very good about the shop.

When it comes to restaurant-style Japanese food, the more options there are on the menu, the more excited I get, but I'm also satisfied with a certain variety.

The price is reasonable given the location, but I don't think it's expensive, so I think it's reasonable.

It may not be a place you go out of your way to sightsee, but it's a good place to visit at least once if you're staying at a hotel or on a date.
