This is a great place to experience a unique Peruvian and Japanese food fusion. Theeu offer a variety of Japanese dishes that are merged with a Peruvian twist to create some unique sushi rolls and dishes. This cuisine is called nekkei and unique to this region due to the influence from Japanese immigrants in Peru. A delicious and exciting culinary experience o explore. This restaurant has a nice vibe and decor. If you have a group, go upstairs to have an even better time relaxing and eating in this patio, bar area.

A friend that lives in Lima recommended this restaurant so we decided to give it a try, but it was the most awful experience we have ever had on a japanesse restaurant.
The reservations service: It is only possible to make dinner reservations as late as 8:30pm. The gentleman answering the phone clearly stated that the reservation was only kept for 10 minutes, however when we got to the restaurant there were plenty of free tables and none of them was specifically reserved for us so they seated us anywhere.
The sashimi: Since Peruvian cuisine is famous for the freshness of its sea food we had great expectations but we were really let down. We ordered salmon, octopus and prawn sashimis which were recently thawed and bland, and even worse, the prawns had a suspicious after taste which make us left most of them.
The maki rolls: As the sashimi the maki rolls were a complete disappointment. we had three different combinations butter, fried and another and ended up leaving part of them as they were greasy and not tasty at all.
The coctails: We had the Rosini, a strawberry champagne coctail and it was the worst of all. Instead of real strawberries it was made with some disgusting red syrup that ruined the champaigne. As with the rest of the orders we ended up leaving most of them.
The service: It seems that there is a lack of management in the place. The waiters and the personell at the sushi bar are distracted taking and joking among themselves. No one seems to care what happens with the food or if the customers are enjoying it.
To sum up it has been the worst restaurant experience I have ever had in Lima, a complete dishonour to this gorgeus cuisine!!

We go there pretty often and usually have makis, every kind of rolls specially the "acevichado" roll and a main dish always with fish or duck. We have never been dissapointed with the service or food quality. We spend around 100 soles or USD 40 per person.

Often acclaimed as a good Peruvian-Japanese restaurant, yet overrated. There are several Japanese or Peruvian-Japanese restaurants that are far superior. Take Osaka or Toshiro’s just to name two.
The Jasmine tea was from the bag (and a poor bag at that!), the tuna sashimi wasn’t all that fresh and the various rolls and soups are just OK. The service is just OK as well. The whole place looks a bit run down, with sticky chairs and old menu cards. I am sure it must have seen better times.

It's a Japanese - Peruvian resto in which fried food is the main chart of the menu. Maybe this is what I didn't like it... I really don't like fried fish, and almost all entrees were made with a fried ingredient. The vegetables and seafood meal, suggested by the waiter as a light option, came with fried fish!! It was prepared with the wok but the fish was fried!!
Service was not good enough, the waiter didn't know the ingredients of the menu options. If you want a heavy dinner maybe this is a good choice, but if you re looking for a light dinner, maybe you should choose another place.
Sushi was not really creative as they promote...
