Recommended by a colleague. Had to wait for a table (always a good sign). Food delicious, cocktails refreshing and staff efficient. Tantalising flavours - sampled a range of dishes. Tempura with the lightest batter I’ve had to date. Will definitely be back!

literally squeezed in between two ground floor restaurants. you could blink and walk past the door. you enter and go into the ground (basement). then you see all the cool random retro collectible stuff everywhere. loved the hipster ambience. FOOD WAS AMAZING. we had tuna tartare, a few rolls that just melted in your mouth, and shishito peppers. mochi ice cream was good. the green tea one was better than the chocolate one. such a cool hidden gem. so glad we found it just by googling a place close to us with good reviews. 100% recommended.

Nice atmosphere, we choose 5 dishes to share which was actually too much food. The kimchi shrimp dish only had 2 shrimp but was tasty. The steak with ponzu was a little bland. The deep fried chicken was delicious and the sushi was tasty.

Over all this is more fun casual dining, the flavor won’t blow you away but it’s nice fresh food.

Absolutely one of the best food experiences I’ve had! The food was fresh, good, full of flavours! Went for dinner without reservation so had to wait a bit for a table, but was totally worth it! Super friendly staff! Would recommend for anyone who wants to eat fresh food in a cool hipster kind of place!

Most people work here are Japanese. It’s authentic, smaller portion (for Americans) but very reasonable $
