    Best japanese restaurant around! It's so delicious. Don't forget to get their truffled fried rice
  • Victor G.
    Amazing food, nota 11! The short rib yaki is a food from heaven! Beware that the Japanese risoto takes 40min to prepare and the only downside of the restaurant is that is too noisy

    Recommend the wagyu carpaccio, and the ginger lamb chops. Also has a very good sake menu. If you're not a regular sake drinker try their Makoto Private Label, it's floral, light, and not too sweet.
