Tucked away outside Millenia Walk is this large Japanese restaurant—a mix of counter and booth seats, and cleverly-utilized space awash in earthy tones. We started off with a bowl of genmai (brown rice) imported from Japan’s Akira prefecture. The short-grain rice was soft, fluffy, chewy and very nice. We then went on to an ofune, a platter with eight types of sashimi, including tuna, prawns, crab legs, scallops and horse mackerel. It was delicious—fresh and very tasty, especially the scallops.

Although it was hard to attract the wait staff’s attention at times, they did their best to oblige our requests, and were likeable and sincere. The kushiyaki moriawase comprised seven sticks of assorted skewered grills and we loved everything—especially the asparagus wrapped in bacon, chicken balls and chicken wings. A refreshing yuzu sherbert marked the end of our enjoyable meal that was enhanced by great service.
