Very nice place. Fresh and delicious food. Did not have dessert (no more cheesecake!) and only beer or sake to drink. Would have appreciated some wine.

I eat sushi regularly and all over the world including Japan and Korea. The sushi here was very good , I was quite surprised. Service was very polite and friendly , but it was slow. This could have been due to post Covid ramp up, but was slow regardless. In either case I will likely be going back.

Very disappointed with our experience. Service was slow, our waiter barely acknowledged us all night. At least another waiter stepped in and tried to serve us. Food was mediocre, definitely over-priced for what you get. Sadly we will not be going back.

disappointed — rice in poke bowl was too warm and heated the roe and sea urchin... those were nice sashimi, how could this happen ... Tempura had really greasy flavour.

Delicious food. Nicely presented with fresh ingredients. Staffs were friendly and welcoming. The price did seem a bit high at first, but once we saw the food and got to eat, we knew then we paid a worthy price for a quality meal.

I think the sushi was too big, did not find the portions were small. Sushi rolls were twice as big as normal sushi. The food is good but for me was too many sauces. Great atmosphere and felt like you were in a Japanese restaurant in Tokyo

The food was amazing. It was so good we ended up ordering our favourites again but through uber eats the next day. It looked a bit understaffed with just one waiter so we had to check on our orders but he was very helpful.

The restaurant offers a very calming and romantic ambiance which was perfect if you want to head there for a date. However, the proximity of the tables of another couple was so close to us that we could hear their conversations and ours from their point of view. It also caused discontentments from their parts because they did not enjoy hearing us. The food was amazing, fresh, and beautiful if you like to take pictures of your food. Definitely a wonderful place to head to for a date. The service was not the best, waiters-waitresses don’t have the time to serve you properly, which I’m not totally mad about since it was quite busy. Although they did not come ask us every minute if everything was good (thank God), they could have at least fill up the water. The price point was really good, inexpensive. It would be perfect if only we could have more personal spaces/privacy between tables.

Actually the food here is okay, however when we pay the bill the waitress select 20% tip without noticing us, I feel like you should improve on the service or I won't eat here again
