Mexican, Japanese, American and now some Thai dishes, I was there for lunch and you can choose 1 out of 3 plates. I had the shrimps with coconut sauce, excellent as usual. Will have to try the other two. Service is great as usual and I was in and out in 40 minutes.

I love this place because everybody can find what make them go like "oh, I want this".
The Japanese menu is quite good for being in Lugano but you can have, thai, mexican and much more.
Service is great although it may slow down at times, people are super friendly and everything comes with a smile.

Had dinner with friends this weekend and had absolutely the best time. The food was amazing, a choice of Sushi, Mexican food and much more and what we had was amazing. Great service although we had to be patient for the Sushi, but all together great place to eat well and have a good time.

I like the place and have lunch here often, the atmosphere is good and they serve good sushi. Reservation is not needed and they have free home delivery in Lugano which is great (but make sure you call in advance, as delivery service is really slow).
I can't say the same about Mexican food, which is unfortunately only a pale imitation of the original.

Yes indeed the staff is not always fast, but some of the waiters are nice and the owner is a pleasant person.
I wish they had a bigger Japanes menu, not just sushi. At least some ramen or soba noodles, please please please:-)

The best sushi restaurant in Lugano. Good atmosphere and interesting choice of sushi but also other cuisines available. Good if you are dining with a friend who would rather eat a salad or Mexican even! Great cocktails too!
