    Brilliant place for some good sake and takoyaki and a lovely staff. This really does feel like being in Japan.

    A standard venue for our mid-drinks. Not super fancy but decent quality japanese izakaya fare. Hits the spot.

    Very nice Japanese style bar. They have Orion on tap and there are a lot of options if you are into sake. The food here is also excellent. To top it off, the staff are very friendly and courteous.

    Awesome atmosphere. Staff are super friendly and helpfull when choosing the right drink. You can also order snacks from the izakaya resturant next door which is also amazing.

  • 5Georgia W. 1 year ago
    We LOVE this place, it's our secret little date-night spot. If it's just the two of you, sit in the bar rather than the restaurant - it's got so much character! Same guy serves us every time we are there, super friendly and relaxed dude who always puts on some cool underground Japanese tunes. Definitely recommend!

    Very authentic Japanese bar

  • 5Alexander N. 2 years ago
    This place has really chill vibes; it's small, cosy and has some nice hip hop beats playing. Perfect for a date or catch up with mates after work. The bartenders are really polite. There is an extensive list of sake, shochu, umeshu and beer. The food is fantastic. I always find myself snacking on the edamame, takoyaki and skewer platters in between drinks. There is Orion beer on tap which is quite refreshing. Shoutouts to Masa - you are a champion.

    This Japanese restaurant has been around for 30 years, food is always good with a large selection from sushi, yakitori, noodles, deep fried and sushi set. Love their vibe, does feel like I am in japan! I am their customer for over 15 years!

    Amazing service... Didn't let me over order on food and sake was good... Would come again

  • 4James B. 1 year ago
    Good beer and sake list. Unfortunately a lot of whiskeys, beers and sakes were out of stock. Would love to come back when they have more in stock.

  • 4Desiree B. 1 year ago
    Great for fresh sashimi and sushi.. They do a great job of cutting the sashimi into thick pieces and use only but the freshest seafood! The hot dishes are very hit and miss.

  • 3Daniel C. 1 year ago
    Food quality was okay, I've definitely eaten better. Price, sizing, service, and atmosphere all just pretty okay too.

  • 3owen z. 1 year ago
    9 point for delicious food and fresh sashimi. 6 point for environment and price.
