What we like:
We had set lunch, served with:
Salad, Steamed Egg Custard /Chawanmushi 茶碗蒸, Appetizer, Pickles, Rice, Miso Soup and Fruit.

Loved the salad dressing.
Chawanmushi 茶碗蒸 was one of the best tasting to me. Silky smooth like Tau Huay 豆腐花, most importantly, without any unappetising smell that some other places serve. They came with a Naruto slice and served hot, not lukewarm.
Rice was nice but I find the portion a tad too little for me.
Pickles and Appetizer were not as nice. Miso Soup and Fruit were alright.  

Sashimi Set Rm 38.00
It was the Chef's selection and we were served with 12pieces assortment (photo) and arranged nicely over a bowl of crushed ice. They were fresh and of good thickness, yum yum.

Gindara Set (Teriyaki) Rm 32.00
Grilled Cod Fish, we chose Teriyaki sauce. Portion was reasonable. This was simply delicious, even the skin was nice, crispy and without the fishy smell. 

Neat, minimalistic yet inviting facade.

A roaring and warm greeting by an "army" of chefs and waiting staff as we stepped in. We were promptly shown to our table.

Internal decor extends the same neat and minimalistic style from the facade. The floor are tiled, not left in its original cement state.

I like the seating arrangement, well planned and spacious.

Air-con was comfortably adequate on a hot afternoon and they just opened for lunch, the restaurant was well prepared and set up before opening hour.

Waiting staff were neatly dressed in uniform, trained and service was both attentive and prompt. Our Green Tea (Free flow and free)  were refilled promptly and it tasted nice and flavored, unlike some other places that served them diluted to almost like plain water.

Clean tables, dining area and free from any funny smell.

Cutlery were clean and chopsticks sheathed. Every table has a good quality tissue paper dispenser. The sauce set was filled and container kept clean. We did not notice any house flies when we were there.

What we don't like:
Wasabi given to us in an untidy fashion.
Pickled Ginger not provided.

Also Available:
Full menu of Sushi, Sashimi, Ramen, Sake, Beer etc.
