Enjoyed a long lunch here and was extremely impressed. The seafood in particular was of very high quality. The oysters were so fresh and sweet. Kingfish sashimi likewise. The restaurant itself and the staff were also excellent.

First time there a few weeks ago and it was amazing, can't wait to go back again. They also cater to vegetarians really well with a separate vegetarian menu.
