I'm from Tokyo and tasted my friend's sushi and it was really awful. I could barely eat it. I guess, why are you ordering sushi in Bali in the first place right?

Some business associate took me here in my last visit. Came back with my family and they are impress. Tried the clam simmer with sake, so sweet. The sashimi that we have is so fresh. Not forgetting the ramen, soup is so tasty and the noodle is cook to perfection. Very happy dinner, the best in this trip.

Looking for fresh raw fish? We came to the right place here ini Take. They have quite a varieties. After few days of Balinese/Indonesian food, we went to another direction- japanese. Sashimi was fresh. Accompanied with good sake at decent price.

I heard the owner is Japanese. The staff are attentive. The best sashimi and sushi that I ever have in Bali. We have mixed platter of sashimi & sushi and many other items to share. The other worth mentioning is the BBQ squid. Will definitely visit again when I'm in Bali.

This place offers live seafood, but one of my all time favorite will be their Abalone Steak. You should also try the honey clam with garlic butter. You might also try their ramen, and beef tongue yakiniku.

I take 2 thumbs up for this japanese restaurant. Fish is really fresh. And the ramen's taste is absolutely Ramen! Due to their Profesional Japanese Food. Advice to Japanese food Lover. Get Ready for your pocket before you step in. But its worth it.
