Restaurant location is very convenient on Beach street within the main shopping areas. I ordered the spinach salad with octopus and it was great. The caterpillar roll was okay- the rice was mushy and the avocado wasn’t super fresh but tasted okay.

The location of this restaurant is right great; directly opposite the waterfront. You will not miss it. The food is pretty basic and average. I've had better Japanese food in Malaysia therefore, I will not say much.

Ordered: Beef bento box and beef hotpot Beef bento box was reasonably good. However, the doneness of the beef should be told firsthand, as it was served MR. Beef hotpot was pretty blend. Overall, service staff was friendly but food was average.
