A stripped back, sleek restaurant with handsome wooden design from top to bottom.
It’s cool, calm and serene, but the friendly service adds great warmth.
WHAT TO ORDER
The metre of sushi is a wow dish for sure, but the shrimp dumpling with squid ink are excellent.
LOOK OUT FOR
Crystal the kung fu tea master, who twirls her teapot around her head before pouring you a cup of green tea to start your meal.
A quiet dinner for two where you can really savour the food.
Get a seat overlooking the teppanyaki plate to see some theatrics from the chef.
A welcoming restaurant serving an interesting contrast of Japanese cuisine, some of it fancy and some of it inspired by street food.
