“Good view”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 via mobile

This place in IFC has a nice view of the opposite Kowloon side, and you'll pay premium for the view and location. I took the sushi counter seat, as always. Service was typical hong kong, efficient if not brusque. Ordered the 8 piece sushi platter and the sushi chefs were quickly working on the orders , including mine. They hardly ever look up or smile, never mind to chat with the diners at the counter. The sushi were mostly ok, the tuna and toro were good. There was wifi and i asked for the password. They passed me the business card and the password was the name and phone number, which I thought was good marketing right? Right after I keyed in the password, they took the card away! So they don't want guests to have a card of the place? Weird

“I expect more from a teppan place in HK”
Reviewed 22 March 2013 via mobile

Lunchtime visit with work colleagues. I was paying so perhaps that immediately pushes my expectations up. Choose a teppan set meal. Fairly average to be honest.meat didn't melt in the mouth like it normally does and service was a bit haphazard. Was busy though so maybe was just one of those off days but won't be going back in a hurry. Plenty other top restaurants nearby where you get more value for money.

“Bad Food”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Took my son for lunch at REI. Have been a few times before and enjoyed the food. This time was very disappointed.

Red tuna salad was okay but far too much mayonnaise. Soft shell crab roll smelled bad when it arrived and my ten year-old son spat out his first taste. We returned it but they left the spat out food on the table for the rest of the meal. The prawn tempura roll was okay but little flavour.

Teppanyaki giant prawn was borderline acceptable. Was definitely not fresh but probably not bad enough to send back. My son did not want to eat it. Teppanyaki cod was undercooked and had bones in it.

Worst Japanese meal I have had in Hong Kong in the last 14 years.

Unenjoyable meal - will not return (too may good options).

“Thought I was in Tokyo”
Reviewed 25 December 2012 via mobile

The food was so delicious and the sushi is so fresh. Wide selection of sushi and sashimi available, delicious hand roles, tempura, fish and steaks and all the other things we didn't Oder anymore because we had already too much. Nice setting with stunning view to Kowloon. Try to get a window booth. So if you miss Tokyo quality Japanese food, go here. Prices are high but not outrageous

“The sushi Man”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

The sushi man is the most funny and strange man ever seen behind a sushi bar, gave to the dinner a funny taste. The toro (fatty tuna) was excellent, as well the taste of the uni was far away respect usual taste. Good sake list.
