The quality of food is good, but the service is really slow. We have dined during busy hours and we also have dined on "off-peak" hours, and the experience is similar. Staff tend to be inattentive and keep on forgetting orders. Even the request for our bill took long.

We were here in January 2016 because my fiancée and I were craving Japanese food. Service was horrible beyond comprehension. Most horrible service I have ever experienced in any restaurant. The waitresses took forever (20 minutes) to take our order even though the restaurant was empty since it was around 3 PM. A waitress already saw us take our seats... More

Came here with my family. Hoping all will go well, as my kids are fussy eaters. The waiters looked bored and basically finished. I needed to ask to have the table cleaned down three times. That was a bad sign. We were the only people in there, most people had left, so the food came out very quickly. The food... More

Conveniently located in the 2nd floor of Limketkai Mall, it offers set Japanese food in bento boxes for a reasonable price. Food is authentic Japanese which is yummy & service is great! However, not all displayed bentos were available, hence you have to make do with what's available.

Ordered bento, chicken teriyake and other stuff. Only bento arrived. 30 minutes later, they forgot the rest. Cancelled the rest. Bento was cooler than expected. I wanted it warmer at least. It was as if the dish was setting there for a long time before served. Sauce was out of taste (not typical japanese gyoza sauce). Teriyake beef is the... More

I am not on to complain (please see my other reviews). This is by far the worst service of any restaurant I have every experienced in CDO. My wife & I stopped in for lunch while shopping. Our first 5 choices of entrees and drinks were "not available." I ordered green tea & was happy to see a large hot... More

My review is actually quite late. My first and definitely last visit was back in 2010. I was craving for some Japanese food so there we were. We ordered and waited for a long, long time. While waiting at our seats, there were small cockroaches roaming the walls. When the food arrived, the spoon&fork didn't look clean enough so I... More
