Food was really good. Every dish tasted amazing. Only slight gripe was that we really liked love sushi and there was only on sushi course with the omakase. Not to worry it means we are planning a return trip to try it!

Would be good to have a more extensive wine list. Service was good apart from one waitress with long blonde hair in a pleat who loudly told us off for putting soy sauce on our plates as we should have apparently used the green small plates. Quite frankly I think it is the customer's business how we eat and felt humiliated as she did this very loudly in front of other customers who also seemed taken aback. However the food was amazing and the other waiter was fantastic. She did spoil the night somewhat for us though and perhaps needs some education on customer service. We pointed this out on the night so hopefully this has been fed back.

Food is always fantastic, by far my favourite place to eat. Might benefit from larger drinks selection. Staff are always friendly and helpful but during busy times are not able to be as attentive as they could be. Still my favourite restaurant in Aberdeen!

The service is average. It will be great if more options of dessert are offered, eg mochi.

Japanese music to complete atmosphere. My 4 deep fried crabs were absolutely delicious. The octopus was also delicious. Sorbet and wine also a delight

We had asked about buying a bottle of sake, and saw online that you were the only place in Scotland that allowed the purchase of a bottle to take home. This eluded to being able to "cork" the bottle and take it away. We bought a £90 bottle of sake that was 1800ml and it wasn't until our meal was almost finished that the waitress mentioned we would have to finish the entire bottle before leaving. This was really quite regrettable as we had not planned on drinking a litre of sake between two people and should have been explained before opening.
