Went there few time now. It is a great genuine Japanese, recreating more Japanese cuisine from the Southern part of Japan.

The food is excellent, good portion and nice service. It might be perceived expensive but Japan restaurant are, as they rely on very fresh product. In a major city I would expect the bill to be at least 2 time more expensive with this quality of service. The wine is simple but good too.

Lovely authentic atmosphere and delicious food made to order, they now do take away too which makes me very happy! Lots of choice on the menu, prompt service and a clean environment. More on the expensive side but for food that's mainly healthily prepared that's what is to be expected. I would come every day of the week if I could.

My wife and I ate here last Saturday as part of a 'day out treat' and we're massively impressed. We were the first to arrive for the evening sittings but we needn't have been concerned as the place filled up to capacity over the following few hours. The service was excellent and wonderfully efficient with dishes we'd ordered being brought out as and when ready. We both ordered the set menu for £24.95 and simply chose different items, leading to a great variety from which we could pick and choose. The food was delicious and beautifully prepared and an excellent time was had by all. Nice to see Taunton spreading it's wings where tastes and cultures are concerned. Highly recommended.

Taunton has a few good restaurants including the castle hotel, very good indian and nepalese etc and this is a great addition. Authentic Japanese at very reasonable prices a meal for 2 with drinks less than £40. Large portions we had to leave some. Not posing restaurant . Busy too. Highly recommend.

Very enjoyable meal-great menu had difficulty deciding which dishes to order! We had a Japanese friend with us who was initially a bit skeptical about what an 'English-Japanese' restaurant could offer but she was very pleasantly surprised and pleased at how authentic the food was. Can seem quite expensive compared to other places you could choose to eat at in Taunton but you could see how fresh and how much attention to detail there was. Sat at the traditional Japanese table for the novelty value. Great place to try for 'something different'.
