Reviewed January 1, 2015 via mobile

Ate here New Years eve Dec 31 2014. Arrived around 7:45 pm as they were about to close at 9. Was glad they allowed us in. By the time hit 8:30. manager was worried about more customers coming so she pit up the closed' sign. Food nevertheless was superb.

Our orders were taken quickly without any hassle. Came after 10 minutes. We ordered Salmon sashimi, california maki, shrimp tempura, katsudon, and chicken teriyaki to be shared. No real complaints except katsudon lacked the sauce to my opinion. I like my katsudon with sauce dripping onto the rice. Real good nonetheless.

Fitting New Years eve dinner.

One of my friends found this gem of a restaurant while we were looking for a place that served Japanese food during our trip to Subic.

If you don't know your way around Subic, Google Maps will navigate you to the restaurant with no problems so use it when in doubt.

The decor was minimalist and modern. Lots of light and large windows so it gives you a feeling that the restaurant extends to the exterior. The staff were very courteous and we had a lot of fun chatting it up with them during our meal.

Most of what we ordered were either sushi or sashimi. It is rare to have a sushi chef who really knows what he's doing and their chef KNEW what he was doing. The sashimi were all fresh and beautifully sliced. The rice in the sushi and maki weren't falling apart and it was flavored just right. The saba sashimi in our chirashi sushi brought tears to my friend's eyes -- it was so good.

The seafood ramen and the ebi tempura were equally excellent. The meal was capped off with some excellent sake served in a really cute pitcher. Definitely one of the best Japanese meals I've ever had.
