“Authentic Japanese don! We love the environment and the food are very eye catching! I love how they present their food, it is like an art piece! I would definitely go back again to try the salmon don as it was out of stock when I visited. There are plenty of parking outside the restaurant.” – Yap venture

“We came here as it was highly recommended by a friend. The food was so delicious, neatly presented, and came out quickly. The matcha tiramisu is a must try! It’s so creamy but not too sweet. Tables fill up quickly, so best to book ahead.” – Janette M.
