Great food and friendly service. Sushi was good, rainbow rolls were the best and the tempura was amazing! Happy hour drinks of rum and coke sealed the deal.

You wouldn't always think of eating Japanese is Granada but to our surprise it was by far the best. Masaya and his team are legendary, we're coming back!

Authentic Japanese food. Fresh sushi, tempura, sake and more. Japanese chef. International standards. Beautiful surroundings with ambiance and modern decor. A safe, well lit, 5-minute walk from the main tourist area (Calzada Street). Great for couples, groups and business meetings or just one. Lots of local information and advice on traveling around.
