Clean pleasant good sushi and tempura. Get a booth for full experience. Went on a Sunday for brunch and not too crowded. But hear otherwise during regular hours. Book ahead

My friend recommended this place and brought me and 2 other friends to try. We booked last minute so tables were no longer available but luckily we still had counter seating. The restaurant is small but cozy and has the vibe of an authentic Japanese restaurant. Some appetizers and our hot green teas were served immediately when we sat down.... More

This place offered one of the freshest sashimi buffet albeit limited variety. If you have a big appetite for sashimi and Japanese food, then you will be able to offset the buffet cost. As dinners are always at the restaurant's peak, orders and service can be slow. Coupled with a time limit to your dining experience, with limited seating &... More

Visited restaurant on 30 Nov, 2016. Been there several times with friends. Its buffet spread never fails to impress. Had the freshest sashimi. Serving was generous. Service was commendable. The ebi tempura and maki were yummy. The yuzu sorbet is out of this world. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our meals at each visit. Cheers to the restaurant for... More

Saw the recommendation on hungry go where, and read some review that is always crowded and need advance reservation but it does not turn out to be that fantastic. For $38 buffet dinner sound good deal, but is only just ordinary japanese food nothing to shout about. The sashimi serving look generous, the tempura was tasteless, the shisamo fish not... More

This is the first time we had our regular get together at this Japanese restaurant. It was Alacart buffet. The spread was very good indeed. For the price it really value for money. As all of us were there for the first time, we left the choice of dishes to the manager. All the dishes served were above our expectations.... More

Went for dinner to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The sashimi is fresh and served in big portions. We loved the yellow tail, tuna and salmon. The sword fish is a tad hard for my liking. My girls loved the Ebi tempura, Chawan mushi, satzuma imu (fried sweet potato) and salmon skin temaki (handroll). The tebasaki (grilled chicken wings) is not... More

I eat Sashimi in this day more than I eat all of my life. The Sashimi bar kept serving me without me asking for anything. The shrimp tempura and the Sushi and Maki and Soup was amazing too. Only for 32 USD.

The staff are friendly, (especially Pei Ching, the Assistant Manager) the restaurant is always crowded on dinner and weekends. You gotta book at least a few hours in advance. The food is rrally good. Presentation is amazing plus its worth for your stomach. MUST TRY: - goma ice cream - salmon belly - salmon skin handroll - sushi sashimi -... More
