Bad and rude service , the quality of the fish is good but is just traditional sushi with nothing else . You can have the same sushi anywere , there's no innovation and no imagination , not worth what you pay .

I have visited a lot of sushi restaurant through my life. From cheap one to fine one. In my country, to eat this quality of sushi, you have to pay about 100~250 bucks! But here, this place provides great food with reasonable price! Visit here!

The place looked very unique and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. We ordered the tasting menu, which was delicious and special. We had a very pleasant lunch. The courses were in the Japanese spirit of presenting food as it is, in a most wonderful and minimal way. The taste was clean and gentle. Recommended for couples, business or small... More

Terrible food, the fish did not feel as fresh as it should. We were with our kids and there was no intention to offer options that they could eat. The price vs the quality was extremelly disappointing. Do not try the Noodles nor the sushi The wagyu was ok.

It started bad with a rude lady in the reception. From then on it was all downhill... Maybe we had too good of expectations 'cause we read it was a fancy and good Japanese restaurant, but we came out very disappointed. Overpriced menu, food was no better that our corner sushi shop, and the service was plain awful... I would... More

This place isn't cheap, and it's not that easy to get a reservation, but it's definitely worth the money and waiting time. Everything is prepared right in front of you in the open kitchen. The chefs are friendly, and eager to explain whatever question you may have. I had the (g)astronomical menu, which was a wide variety of Japanese dishes,... More

The food tastes ordinary. Not worth the price. Do not order the soup noodles; it consists of processed noodles with a few tiny chunks of pork.

The sushi was very fresh, and extremely good. As was the wagyu beef which was to die for in my opinion. The service and food were very good. For the most part I loved all the dishes.

Delicious tasting menu, super fresh products. Been to many high end Japanese Restaurants in Europe and would definitely place them under the top 3!

Had lunch this week at this small, high-end Japanese restaurant some say is the best in Barcelona. Atmosphere is very much what you'd expect, minimalist decor, with ridiculously polite waiters explaining everything in detail. We did the "menú degustación" for two and really enjoyed it. Mostly fish and seafood-based dishes, bite-sized and attractive, some (not all) extremely tasty. Paid just... More
