This place is beyond great, it blew my mind.
I went with a small group and the ambiance in this place is like nothing else I’ve experienced – so cool!
I had the live scallop carpaccio which was incredible, along with a selection of hand rolls and oh-toro sashimi. This place really raised the bar for me on what sushi should taste like, you definitely pay for it though.
It’s pretty rare anymore when you truly feel that you got what you paid for and more. I had the Wagyu for an app followed by the sea bass. Both were beyond spectacular. I sat at the back bar and really enjoyed watching the chefs put together each dish. My server was also spectacular offering explanations and a few spot on recommendations.
