    I wasn't impressed because the food was more of a fusion than typical Japanese cuisine. It's an interesting place if you haven't been to Japan.

    Gaijin menu. Surprised to see Pork Belly twice on a single tasting menu. Good food and service but overpriced.

    Excellent food, book a table and come hungry for the tasting menu! Don't forget to try the cocktails, too. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

    Very good. Nice staff. A bit pricey but it is with it. If you don't like mayonnaise mention it when you order as the chef love to put some in a lot of his dishes

    The vegetarian tasting menu is ok. The highlight was the sweet potato gyoza and nice mixture of flavours for the Tofu tomato salad, GTST. Nice atmosphere, and relaxing. Good place for drinks.

    Gaijin tasting menu is the must! Ask for cocktails that go well with it. Korean food lovers, don't expect getting bossam, because apparently it's samgyeopsal. But no worries, it is still perfect :)

    Gaijin is a mixture of Asian kitchens executed with finesse. Although it's not a budget restaurant, the price-quality ratio is well balanced. Definitely book a table, they're very popular! Read more

    The grilled shrimps with ginger, chilli and garlic sauce score very very high. Great vibe in the place as well. Dim Sums are a must try. Really liking the Korean Japanese n Chinese mix of dishes.

    Beware that when you order a la carte instead of the tasting's menu, you get all the dishes at the same time, except deserts. The restaurant is quite noisy. Despite those, food is rather excellent

    Very good food. Probably one of the best asiatic in this city. But take care if you take a la carte menu, they will order all at the same time, full the table with dishes and you will eat cold!!!
