We tried the Japanese menu, a little on the expensive side but authentic and plentyfull. The pub has a nice ambiance and eclectic feel. Good for lunch or dinner.

Every meal here is a delight and the service is extremely friendly. We will come back again and again. We are pleased to see many positive reviews and the few negative and fake ones should be ignored.
