We came across this place due to our daughter and having had lunch twice I wan't to come back as soon as possible.

Personnel are capable and well trained and... More

The plus is that they realize by themselves that they are not Japanese restaurant. Most of food are made in European style. Sake smells like grappa. I asked for a hot sake but got boiled sake. Sashimi and rolls are more or less okay. So, for whom never been in Japan this place could be OK. В общем ресторан напоминает... More

A mix of japanese and local cuisine suitable for everyone with a reasonable price too. We've been several times there and we're sure will repeat some times more!

We had dinner there twice and both evenings were wonderful. The staff spoke very little English, but they were very friendly and smiling. The food were great and so was the local wine the waiter recommended. Especially their Beef Wellington was spectacular. All in all a close to perfect experience.

Avoid the set menu! Fried sushi, lots of sauces and nothing really japanese. Also expensive and noisy. Only good thing is location.
