    The food was insanely good and I highly recommend the handrolls, the bluefin tuna tartare and the Miso cod main. The drinks do need a little work but other than that everything was amazing!

    This is my third time eating here, my most recent experience was not as good as the last visit. It seemed way too loud for whatever reason, street noise and volume of music made it difficult to talk. Food service was a bit slow compared with other visits but to be fair I did not express how we wanted our food to come out - food came one item at a time which was a bit frustrating. Overall though a good evening and next time I'll request a table at the back if we need to converse!!

    Excellent and considerate service, very consciences about allergies. Food portions were small and rather flavourless. It lacked the umami punch i was expecting. Prices were too high for the food experience. Fun decor and ambiance.

    Food was okay but nothing special, and pretty expensive for what it is. Their drinks are good and hand rolls were the best thing I tried, however that does not justify the price of them.

    Tasty food and drinks!, Attentive service, our water glasses were never empty. Just took a bit of time to get our order in. Our fav cocktails were the Hands Full & the Satsuma Daiquiri Our fave bites were the Bluefin Tuna Tartare ( super creamy and fresh), Cucumber Handroll, and the Sweet Potato Donuts, the miso glaze was unexpected and delicious!

    Absolute perfection. Cannot believe how great our dinner was. The Brussel sprout dish was like nothing I've ever had before in the best possible way. The hand rolls were so fresh and tasty. The tan tempura was a great staple. The beef was great - did come out about 20min after the rest of the food and we were pretty full at that point but taste wise it was amazing and the crispy onions on top were delicious. Will 10/10 be back. Great cocktails too. Thank you. Excited to see this place succeed

    Everything was top notch—we tried several salty snacks, hand cones, udon, scallops and miso cod. Finished with sweet potato donuts. All amazing but the miso cod and little turnips were the stars for me. Excellent service made for a perfect dinner out.

    Absolutely fantastic, the setting and decor threw me off. Extremely off, but don't let that detour you away from the sublime delicacies they have to offer. I recommend going there during happy hours when the handrolls are half off. A must-try, better than Nupo and Shokunin.
