Incredible sushi prepared by expert hands, curated by season and offered to just eight people at a time. The wait can be considerable as it takes about an hour to serve all eight the omakase menu, but we found it worthwhile. It is truly a hidden gem.


Stumbled on this place cuz I saw a queue in some quiet corner. There were only 8 seats but 10 people in the queue. So I joined it and was told the wait was 2 hrs (went before it opened) cuz each sitting is 1.5hrs. It was cold but the wait was worth it.

There are 3 menus at lunch and nothing was in English. The courses are the same but the ingredients differed based on the price paid. The chef was interactive, fun and 2 hours passed by in a blink of an eye. Amazing quality sashimi. I had the best scallops and ikura ever and were told that the maguro delivery was late. They gave us free beef and uni sashimi while waiting and when the maguro finally arrived, we were treated to both otoro and maguro.

Get the sake. The nama sake went perfectly with the sushi. This place might be considered on the pricier side compared to the other sushi places along the street but coming here is paying for that guaranteed quality that would not disappoint.

I would love to come back!


AMAZING flavor .. I went to several sushi spots and by far this was the best taste, not only was it fresh, but he adds the lemon and wasabi into the roll.. the rice is was cooked differently.. Points to consider: is the location the best looking one? Not fancy at all, the opposite, if it wasn’t well recommended I would have never stop or even found. Does it cost like 3-4X as much as normal sushi places .. yes .. but is it worth it?
ABSOLUTELY.. even the sake was the best I had
