I have been both to the old location and the new one. Some of the photos on this TA page are of the old interior and garden. I must say that the new interior is much nicer and the location is much more convenient. To go along with the new place they have also modernized the menu. It is now much more upscale and incorporates some hints of fushion cuisine. We tried some of the seafood dishes outside of the sushi and sashimi menu and were not disappointed. Everything was fresh and well prepared. The wine by the glass recommended by the waiter was also excellent. Will be back to try the sushi in the new location soon.

Read some reviews and expected great things having been to Japan many times.

Those who write that this is a great "Japanese" restaurant clearly have neither been to Japan nor to a real Japanese restaurant.

Here is a tip: most restaurants that primarily make sushi, tempura, gyoza and some basic dishes hardly qualify as "Japanese".

Unfortunately, just like most such restaurants in Sofia they cannot prepare even basic Japanese dishes - they are just VERY overpriced sushi places.

Many of the dishes do not come as proper meals, so you have to buy rice separetely! And here's some advice to the restaurants: rice is CHEAP and in Japan customers get free refils including green tea! So dont be pathetic loosers, treating customers like walking wallets!

Unfortunately most restaursnt either serve you a tiny portion of you have to pay for rice!

Summary: nothing special about this place other than the prices!

Very good Japanese cuisine. The fish is very fresh like they have just take it out of the ocean. The service was extraordinarily and the atmosphere take you in Japan it self. Definitely worth to be visited.

I went to dinner with a friend and we had a lovely evening. Beautiful presentation of the dishes, very good quality products and attentive and knowledgeable servers. We ordered as per the recommendation of our waiter and were very happy with the outcome. The gyoza and tuna salad as a starter were delicious and were even topped by our mains - ribs and octopus. The atmosphere is also very pleasant, especially due to the high ceiling windows. Will go back for sure.
