The people, the food and the service are always 5 stars. The sushi is always fresh and the right temperature and the Saki is excellent. The teppanyaki tables are always great for adults and kids. The chefs put on a wonderful show and I'm familiar with Rocky Aoki and Benihana.

This is the best Japanese food you'll find in Bahrain. The staff were very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. In addition the food was amazing as always and priced very reasonably (20-25BD for 2). A must visit resturaunt if you're in town.
