While the quality of the food was generally fair, the prices made this place a no-go for future visits, especially since the portions of the ala carte dishes were quite miniscule. My tip is to only order the set meals as they are a lot more value-for-money. Or else, take a business associate there if an expense account is applicable.
1) Sashimi Platter, consisting Maguro ($24 for 5 pcs), Kajiki ($20 for 5 pcs) and Sake ($18 for 5 pcs) which is essentially tuna, swordfish and salmon respectively. I liked the freshness and natural sweetness of the thickly sliced fish, but thought $62 for the entire platter was shockingly pricey
2) Tofu Steak Set Lunch ($18) - comprising a grilled organic incredibly smooth tofu steak slathered in a fragrant garlic teriyaki sauce, then topped off with sauteed mountain vegetables and served with a side of juicy seasoned momotaro tomatoes
3) Pan-Seared Foie Gras & Scallop Sushi ($88 for 4 pcs) and Wagyu Aburi Sushi ($35 for 2 pcs). I'm not a fan of foie gras per se, but the melt-in-your-mouth goose liver married the fresh scallop perfectly, and the seared beef was also meltingly tender and flavoursome. Ridiculously expensive sushi, but memorably delicious
4) Sashimi Set with Rice ($38) - a favourite with the ladies because of the fresh, plump sashimi
5) Buta Sushi ($18 for 2 pcs) - a delectable topping of slow roasted pork belly was moist, flavoursome and decadently fatty, with a wrapping of seaweed lending dimension to the sushi. Still, it was a bit painful knowing each mouthful of sushi cost 9 whole bucks
