We have had the chance to taste the menu... The food is very delicate, and ingredients incredibly fresh with sushimaki and sashimi served to order. We have been offered to discover a whole range of dishes, very delicious: Gyozafish tacoslobster spring roll, a selection of sashimi, different kinds of Gunkan maki (with a bit of caviar, please!), and Nigri.... Everything is extremely well balanced, very delicate in the mouth.

We did really appreciate the very interesting wine pairing. We also highly recommend sake to finish on a great note with dessert, Sea Food, one of the only sakes produced by a woman in Japan. A drink reminding us of some Sauvignon wines... And of course, honorable mention to the Kobe Gunkan with Wagyu and foie gras, very smooth and flavorful!
