“First time was lovely”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

This was the first time I had tried japanese and I can say I thoroughly enjoyed it! We shared a selection of dishes from the menu from sushi to tempura veg but my surprise favourite was the cheese gyoza! Something I never expected to see on a japanese menu but will definitely have again! Ive already booked another table again for 2 weeks time

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Went to edinburgh for the weekend and the family and I started craving Japanese food. Siri on the i phone led us to this place.

We ordered 3 lunch time specials. I ordered the teriyaki salmon and my husband n son ordered the chicken Katsu curry. All three dishes come with rice and miso soup for 4.95 lunch special. Food tasted really nice.

Although the portion size is really small - it is filling and very tasty. In addition we ordered one large dragon roll. Not the best we have tasted but nice enough.

Overall, a great find with authentic tasting food available. Would def go again and again!!!

“One of the best Japanese restaurants I've eaten in”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Food is delicious, I had sushi twice and each time it was made perfectly. The restaurant itself is a lovely, small place that had a nice, ad hoc feel about it and the waitresses couldn't have been nicer!
