A wonderful sushi experience! The food was delicious and was such a wide variety of fish. I kept changing my mind on what was my favorite part! As tourists who only spoke English the experience wasn't as fun because we couldn't converse freely with the chef and other guests but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. Would definitely recommend if you're wanting a special night out!


Incredible Japanese dining experience. Approximately 20 courses. Sushi and some hot dishes. Reserved 2 months in advance and wortthe wait.


It’s fantastic and fun with an emphasis on tuna. We were seated in a small secondary room. Make sure to ask for the main room if you want to be served by the sushi master. His apprentice was excellent.
