I had high hopes for this place but what came out high was only the bill. The sushi was ok nothing out of the extraordinary but the mains oh my! We had chicken Teriyaki which was breaded chicken sitting on top of a mound of old looking rice which tasted like nothing. My the breading split from the chicken so... More

Roomy,nice ambiance - great food and waiting time is minimal. But the servers are either students or drifters on 'working holidays'. Most can barely speak English and every time, one of them just has to get something in the order wrong. Last month the boss evidently wasn't there because they chucked everyone out at 2230hrs with some lame excuse. If... More

Although the sushi was 'freshly prepared' we didn't think the fish was very fresh. Set menu for lunch EUR 23 was not very good. There is wifi. The bathrooms were disgusting and we would not go there again.

Loveky food and amazing service. Very reasonable. The edamame was a total let down though - very soggy indeed.

We really enjoyed our family diner at Cafe Sakurai. Service was very good and the food was great. Nothing to complain about...

Terrible Terrible experience. Spend 2 days in hospital on a drip and over €300 in medical bills. Goes without saying that I will never be back.

I don't often eat in hotel restaurants but this place was really good. Mixed sushi included a wide and varied selection, all well-prepared, and at a very reasonable price. Place was quiet, service was attentive, menu included a wide range of sushi, sashimi and noodle dishes. My only disappointment was that the green tea came in a thick pottery teapot... More

We went her initially because we had a discount voucher for it as we were staying at the Preluna Hotel, however it was so good we came back a second time. The food here is excellent and well priced. The menu is very extensive, with all kinds of sushi and hot options.

I have tried a few sushi places in Malta but I would say this one is closer to the top. The restaurant itself is visually appealing and the food was actually pretty good. I got the sushi and tempura set menu and my fiance got a hot dish. My set menu came with miso soup and to be brutally honest,... More
