Wow. This really made me not trust san pellegrinos top 50 restaurants, because this was literally the most average borderline bad sushi/japoneses I have ever been to. I have been to many Michelin star restaurants and some are better than others but the standard of...More

Restaurant has a huge menu. The highlights for our visit were the tempura curry leaves, Tuna nigiri and Ten Sabi Temaki. The fusion items are well hidden on the menu so make sure you ask your server about them.

Was fortunate to eat from this great restaurant several times. My first experience was in 2009. Highly recommend to try this restaurant once during your stay in Colombo.
