    Lovely restaurant with an interesting menu and great food. Very good cocktails. Accommodating and friendly staff. The butterfish tataki, crab croquette and the scallop ceviche were exceptionally good, to die for. Sashimi was tasty, fresh and very well served - big, juicy slices - and we loved that a portion comes in an even number (4) of pieces.

    A delicious variety of dishes to try, we shared a sushi platter and also added delicious butterfish with truffle, tender wayagu beef, tempura prawns - accompanied by several japanese pornstars. We topped it off with mochi and the flambé french toast & hazelnut ice-cream. A highly recommended gem in Bethnal Green with great service and ambience.

    This is currently my favourite restaurant. The food is outstanding and good value for money. I cannot wait to go back. My favourite dishes are: kimchi, tofu kara-gee, seared butterfish, grilled aubergine, California sushi. Their house red is also good.

    The restaurant was clearly under-staffed. Service was extremely slow, took over 1 hour for us to receive our starter. My main dish had a hair in it. Waiters had very little time to attend to us as the restaurant was clearly operating over capacity. Food was okay, apart from the hair which I had in my dish, which basically ruined my experience. It is a shame, since the flavours were okay. I will not recommend because of the low quality of hygiene and service standards. Over priced.

    The ambience and food is very good and the cocktails are different (in a good way!) The service could be better as we were forgotten about a couple of times and so were some of our dishes, which we had to keep asking for. Overall would definitely recommend this place!
