    Their salmon sashimi is Japan's greatest contribution to the Philippines, a cultural import to compensate for the Japanese Empire's occupation of the Philippine Commonwealth during World War II.

    One of my favorite japanese resto. Will surely satisfy your sashimi, sushi or bento craving at LOW COST. ;) Must try: Toro spicy maki/spicy tuna, gyoza, gyu ju, salmon sashimi, saba(grilled mackerel)

    Order the grilled sticks! Great value for money and tastes good too! Buta bara, chicken wings, or chicken with leeks. Just ask to grill with salt then get a lot of the teriyaki sauce separately. :)

    Go here during lunch time, where they slash the prices of some of the menus. You can get fresh sushi platters for PHP 280, and it includes appetizer, miso soup, and iced coffee. Best value for money.

    A good alternative for kikufuji. The spicy tuna maki is different from your usual and the gyoza is pretty good as well! Also the only jap resto I've been so far that has onigiri(riceball) :)

    Definitely value-for-money - tastes better than Shinjuku. My shoyu ramen came with an appetizer (like adobo cubes), coffee and dessert -- all at P180! ;) Their tempura are the large prawns!

    Grilled tuna head is so yummy, juicy, and good enough for two people. Paid 280 for a set. Barely finished half of it because of the size!

    Good service. Sometimes waiters take awhile for you to notice them, but you can see their effort to please. Try Tamago Sashimi & their Ice Coffee. ✌

    One of the BEST Japanese restos in the metro. Fast and friendly service, good portioned servings, excellent quality food -- truly value for money.

    Get the spicy tuna sashimi and the salmon sashimi. Always good, always fresh. Try also to go at lunch time for more affordable meal sets.

    Instead of getting the maki, try the spicy toro/salmon sashimi instead. Serving is significantly bigger. With onigiri on the side, it's like a deconstructed maki.

    Tired of the Shrimp Tempura? Then try their Shitake Tempura! It's off the menu so you'll have to make a special order for it. ;)

    One of the best Japanese food in Makati! Usually full during lunchtime. Their bento meals are the best for value. It's no wonder why you see many Japanese frequent this place.
