Dinner on a whim..had seen the place on Zomato and decided to give it a try.

Ambiance; Beautifully set up and super Japanese-y! Love the ambiance and décor. Outdoor seating available so you get a view of the fountain but only partial view of the “show” as the intercon building is not visible from that angle.

Food; Variety on the menu is quite limited I would say.

Fried seafood balls – tasted really good but expected it to be a full ball but was hollow inside which was a tad strange.

Seafood noodles – great flavours and what not..the only disappointing part was that the prawns used were frozen as it was mushy.

Cali roll & soft shell crab – good size portion and good taste.

Service; Special thanks to Akiko who was very attentive and had good knowledge of the menu. In general otherwise the service was good.

Value for money: portion sizes in general are rather small, but decent I would say in terms of value.

Overall: Will return and recommend.
