Treat yourself with some amazing japanese food!
There is a section in the restaurant where it is only opened at night, and that section is the best place to sit. The walls in that section is only covered in glass, so it gives a great view outside, and a fine place for dinner. I ordered the Mabo tofu, their special spicy tofu which is famous in japan, and although it was lacking in the 'spicy' department, it still tasted amazing, as I found myself dipping the tofu on its sauce multiple times. All the sushi I ordered was great too, although I would've preferred those in Sakae sushi. Their takoyaki balls came in 6 balls, and I could'nt get enough of it.
However, I have some complaints about the restaurant. Firstly, it was quite expensive. Secondly, the restaurant happens to be near a pub, so when it plays loud music, you could hear them, and feel the vibration coming off from the music. My parents had a headache from hearing all that. But in the end, I still crave for their food despite all these problems.
The variety of sushi available is much more varied than other major outlets like Sushi King and Sakae Sushi. I would definitely go have a few plates of my favorite sushi like Unagi (Eel) and Inari ( Tofu Skin) because they taste so much better there.
Then I would open the beautifully decorated menu and start to salivate at the many dishes available. It is recommended to try the main dishes from the menu as they are often quite affordable and delicious.
Unfortunately the restaurant is located near a pub and during dinner time, the pub's loud music can be heard in the restaurant which can destroy the ambience of the dinner. Especially if you're having a private dinner with family members. So it is recommended to book a table deeper inside the restaurant where the walls are sound proof .
