The restaurant offered a wide range of Japanese foods including the grilled ginko nut. The quality of shasimi is ok but quantity is on lower side compared with others. The service is not so good as teh guest have to serve sake by ourselves.

The quality of food doesnt worth that much. Some dishes even feel like badly reheated, a bit tasteless. The staff have a blank expression and lack of enthusiasm while serving. Not worth the money.

Maybe a bad night as this was my first visit, however, too many issues to be rated above average in my view. No sushi bar as advertised or the staff doesn't know where it is, no tuna (maguro) at all on this evening (3 Oct - 8pm), service was very poor, staff seemed to be hiding and had to be... More

I tried severals Japanese restaurants and this is the best so far. There are lots of variety of fishes and they are all very fresh. I recommend the eel maki which is very tasty. Furthermore, this restaurant is suitable for family with kids as they can provide kid chair.

I've visited this restaurant quite a few times over the years. The service is excellent, quite detailed, they take care of you from the beginning to the end. This restaurant has a large variety of food, over 200+ different dishes (or more). The restaurant reinvents itself every now and then via introducing new products or set meals.

Authentic Japanese restaurant. The food was really good, however the service was extremely lacking in attentiveness (waitresses talking amongst themselves at the counter). The food was well presented, and the wasabi is amazing. Don't be put off by what seems like entering a office building as the restaurant covers the upper floors, which you enter by lift.

Although I have probably eaten at two dozen Japanese restaurants in VIetnam, this is one of the few I would definitely return to and recommend. Everyone in our party was very happy with the quality of the food as well as the service and atmosphere. We sort of stumbled upon this place whilst on business in Hanoi, as it almost... More

The food is good, sushi is fresh, and they have the excellent snow fish. We came as a group and were able to book in advance. The private room provided quite and private place to enjoy Japanese food with my friends. A bit pricey, but is a very good place for group and/or business lunch/dinner. Will be back again when...

We are very glad that you liked our restaurant. The "snow" fish you ordered is actually cod fish or tara in japanese, prepared on teppanyaki. One of our best! More

Japanese food is undeniably fashionable and there are few places to enjoy this ancient cuisine in Hanoi. And I found out that Wabi Sabi is one of the finest restaurants which provides great food and service. Wabi Sabi generates a surprisingly wide array of Japanese food and drink that you can choose for what you like. The food is great... More
