    Widely raved by the locals as one of the best places to dive in a diversity of Japanese delicacies. Wooden-themed background embellished with chic lightings instills a cozy ambiance. Never miss their range of sushi, adroitly assembled with fresh and flavourful ingredients. Sake Haru Cheese Maki is among the front runners, which is as good as it looks. Sushi is layered with fresh salmon and cheese, which is then torched to perfection. For crab lovers, soft shell crab sushi roll is spot-on.
