As soon as we went in and I realized we were the only ppl in the place I knew we should run for it. Sushi was really bad. Service was charming but amateur. Won't be back

Great sushi-reinvention, great grilled fish. I enjoyed a very good dinner indeed. No excess in spices, dressing. They have an issue with the toilet: you have to go to an adjacent building, pass a sort of security and go to the furst floor, where you...More
