    The staff were incredible! Very patient, attentive, and ensured my friend and I were satisfied with our visit! My friend is lactose intolerant and the kitchen staff accommodated the desserts with great consideration and absolute kindness! The one ingredient with the edible fish bones had a tough texture my friend and I agreed we’d trouble consuming. Else the unagi, prawn, tuna, and even the flavoured rice were the highlights of the night! Very tasty and great range! Would definitely recommend to others! :)

    We had a lovely time hosting friends from Singapore at this restaurant! It was in a lovely location and the service was very good. So many sake options and such a good ambience to enjoy a meal with friends.

    Wonderful dessert degustation accompanied by amazing and knowledgeable hospitality from Sean and Kyeiko. Delicious subtle plates with interesting piquant ingredients. My mocktails suited the food very well whilst my companions’ cocktails it seems were lovely. Great value . We’ll be back!
