    Great Japanese food. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Dumplings, edamame, sushi and nigiri were all amazing.

    Food was excellent. Dining area was tight and cramped. The two waitresses very busy, so service understandably not brilliant. Exceptional value with a 40% fork discount with a 6.30pm booking. The place was fairly full when we arrived. (I assume other diners taking up the impressive offer). When we were presented with the bill, the 40% discount was not deducted. After alerting the waitress, she instantly presented the correct bill (which was already printed at the counter). Sneaky. Please do not offer a fork discount if you are going to try bluff customers.

    Great food,service is kind of rude. An hour time limits is ridiculous,it should be 90minutes in most restaurant.

    Lovely little hidden gem! It hits the spot, when you’re feeling like Japanese for dinner. We’ve been here twice and food was consistently good & fresh. Our favourites- are the tuna & salmon cigar (unique to SK) & the Maguro Hana. The sashimi platter, pork skewers, & braised pork belly were great too. Service was friendly. Highly recommend! PS they’re moving, down the road, in a few months!

    Amazing food as always! The dishes are well crafted, presented, and super fresh! We have been to this restaurant several times, and it's always on top of its game! The facility is quite simple, but food is 5 star dining.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our lovely dinner here and will definitely return! We were warmly greeted when entering this cosy and very clean little restaurant. We loved the menu with it's modern touch; our meals were fantastic and the presentation was beautiful. The Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, King Brown Mushrooms, Squid Tempura and Chicken Yakitori were delicious. Looking forward to trying other items next time and absolutely recommend dining here!

    The dishes are nicely presented, and tasty. However, I booked the table with 30% off offer, when I was paying for the bill, I totally forgot about it, and obviously the waitress would not remind me for that. So I have paid full price for the meal, but hope I could be credited back the 30% off the value for my next visit.
