Absolutely average. Fairly good Japanese cuisine, but nothing special. Rather expensive. No chance to estimate an interior, since quite dark inside the restaurant. Good service

Great quality for the price. Try the seafood miso soup, yellowtail sashimi, dragon roll, emperor roll, shrimp teppanyaki. If you want Japanese food in Kiev, this is the place to go!

Delicious! Real flavours and definitely an experienced Japanese chef. The sashimi is melt in your mouth. The crispy squid was exactly that. Perfect!

The worst meal of my life and that's saying something. The waitress does t speak any English but the manager who booked our table does. The order is taken and the meal starts to arrive one dish at a time but not in the right order. Nothing is served at the same time or at the right temperature. The wine... More

Sushi and sashimi are absolute delight. Huge variety of different fish, including very rare. I would also recommend ordering teriyaki chicken - it literally melts in the mouth. Service is great. Interior design is modern with traditional Japanese elements. The only disadvantage: choice of Japanese whiskey could be better. However, the choice of tea is very good. In conclusion, great...

Blackened cod melted in my mouth. Sashimi was sublime. Seaweed salad fresh and tasty. Interior of the restaurant in typical pared down Japanese style. Very well done stylish but comfortable. In an exclusive part of town close to the 2012 stadium, new shopping mall and other top restaurants and bars. Don't miss it if in kiev.

I hadn't been there for at least 10 years but stepped in spontaneously yesterday for some sushi. I think that it was still good and I liked the service. Not cheap and probably not the best Jap in town but better than what you get from most sushi restaurants in Kiev.
