Sat outside the restaurant on in the Rif Fort area. My wife and I shared the DisneyLand sushi roll and the box of rice and chicken in a chili-thai sauce. Both were very good. Service is very slow though, so you need to be patient...More

Great happy hour deal! It was quiet so service was understandably good. 24 guliders for a large tuna roll a beer and 5 gyosa! You can’t go wrong! The banana tempura was awesome too! Thank you ema tei

We sat at the sushi bar and enjoyed getting to watch the sushi chefs prepare orders. Food was decent and service was on point. Convenient for cruise ship guests. I would call ahead for reservations as it was very busy by the time we left.

On a rainy day with an unquenchable urge for sushi this was my closest option. Simply put, I had no complaints. Lovely authentic Japanese setting inside with the option to eat in the open air at the fort. I will be back again.

The Sushi is very delicious, the staff was nice and the outside sitting was wonderful, chairs with umbrellas covering you from the sun.
