We came with our kids enjoyed a relaxed dinner, fresh ingredients, simple yet delicious soups, and makis. Well priced. Saketini a must.

I waited an hour for my meal, and when another guest that had arrived 30 minutes later than I received the same dish as I had ordered then I got pissed and asked the waitress for mine, which she then promptly produced in less than a minute. The meal itself was mediocre. Sorry to say.. However the ambiance was great.

I had diarrhea right after our visit here (I had a feeling the food here tasted bad- not just like terrible food, but also like food gone bad) and couldn't get rid of it for a week, finally had to take antibiotics. Also, the food here actually tastes terrible and the "no take away" rule sounds like a ridiculous rip... More

Tucked away, down an alley with a few market stalls at the entrance, this Japanese restaurant was a little oasis of calm. Friendly staff and delicious food, would highly recommend it.

Peruvian cuisine is good indeed, but if you feel like changing for a dinner or two, try this really good Japonese restaurant in the heart of Cusco, but beware as most of the dishes are enormous.

This Japanese restaurant is one off the restaurants I like most in the world. Good healthy food with a nice ambient. Good services and good prices. The only thing that might bother you is that sometimes they don't have the complete menu. It doesn't bother me because there are plenty of good dishes on the menu to choose from.

I spent many times un Cusco and I always pass by Plateros street and look at the second story a sing stating "Japanese Vegetarian". In latest years when I often go to the city, the word "Japanese" plus the idea of a restaurant took my attention and finally I decided to get into the restaurant and try the food. Personally...
