Went for business lunch and had a good experience. Menu is a mix of Japanese (Sushi) and Mediterranean cuisine. Quick service and nice quality.

Another one of those " have you seen me" restaurants. Very average food and 50$ for a medium quality piece of meat. Average sushi ( if i can call it sushi, maybe i should call it rice with mayo); average pizza ; average everything. But steep 50-80$ per head!

This place does not die, I started to go to So when i was still in my teenage and i still go there and it is still great! The setting is done like years ago and it is still compatible with today trend. The food is great, i like the salad bar, the pizzas, and the sushi. Great authentic place!

Nice restaurant and setting . Food quality is good, especially pizza . Starters are good as well. Steaks are ok, but good be better. It is strange that only one sauce is available. Also, some products are not available. Place a bit expensive.

Literally one of my worst experiences ever in a restaurant. the waiter (a bit chubby one) was arrogant, robotic and rude acted if he is so bored of his job or he wanted to give the impression he is so cool and a bad boy, he barely spoke and was bothered when taking the order.
