What a wonderful place. Great ambiance and warmth and friendliness of the owners and waiters. We loved the Udon noodles, Teriyaki, dumplings and Sashumi. All beautifully presented too.

If you're looking for great, authentic Japanese food, this place is worth the extra drive to Bunga. It's the only place in Kampala where you find red tuna (delivered to them fresh from Mombasa). Of the many dishes I've tried, the most salient are: *...More
