We are never disappointed here. Incredible tuna tartare and delicious shrimp tempura followed by several rolls that we shared. It is definitely expensive.

One of the best meals we had in Barbados. Chef is creative and everything we ate was delicious. We were seated downstairs in the dining room which is a bit more formal. Definitely A great place to eat.

Upstairs is busiest and caters for all, including families. It's air conditioned & you can watch the sushi chefs prepare the dishes. Downstairs room is a bit more cosy and isn't always used if there's still room upstairs... More
