What we loved: The portions were great. The crab and shrimp salad was very delicious, it’s not too filling but at the same time it’s the perfect dish to have pre sushi as you need to keep enough room to try out their numerous kinds of maki rolls. The Bon Bon which had baby shrimps in it was definitely our favorite appetizer, it just had so much going on, it plays around with your taste. The red cheddar cheese inside goes along so well with the shrimp and sweet chilli sauce. Another favorite was the spicy shrimp mayonnaise, which was indeed ‘spicy’. It was more like the typical “dynamite shrimp” but with a twist. We tried the dynamite shrimp & salmon tempura, we had never tried something with shrimp and salmon before. We were actually quite impressed, we’d definitely recommend it. We chose a bunch of different maki rolls and we liked each and every one we ordered. The Swiss Chocolate Fondant was heavenly, so sweet and chocolaty just how we like our fondants.
What we didn’t like as much: We didn’t enjoy our drinks, the mango juice was way too thick. The sauce of the spicy edamame was a bit too sticky, which makes it very hard to eat, it was more sweet than spicy. Similarly, the white fish with sesame Yuzu sauce didn’t go too well with our taste, there was too much ginger that we could barely taste anything else. If you don’t like ginger taste in your food, we wouldn’t recommend this dish.
What we recommend:
- Spicy Shrimp Mayonnaise
- Chicken Noodle Soup
- Dynamite Salmon and shrimp Tempura
- Calamari Maki Roll
- Ura Ebi Tempura
Ambiance: Very casual. The place is a bit small, but cozy at the same time.
