Smallish Japanese restaurant with limited menu but good enough to satisfy most. Nice sushi bar seats about 15 and smallish table dining area was booked when we got there. After a little wait, we sat at the sushi bar and had a wonderful meal.

The food on offer was a little different to what we were expecting, but we weren't disappointed. The hotpot experience was interesting, with the food being cooked at the table. Our fellow diners, (from Singapore) were very impressed with the food.More
