For a new spot, I really like the ambience that they're building. Whether it's to cater to short term social media fad, or a place that will stay for long, is another question altogether. But most importantly, I enjoyed myself that evening, and hospitality was alright, just a little fine tuning of roles and responsibilities required. Their skewers are nice, where they mix up some good Japanese taste profiles, with some omakase style items. Menu gets a little tough to understand and decide, given the many items they have. You'll likely just ending up ordering what's on the carousel of their Google Maps listing, based on what looks good. Alternatively you'll be recommended some of the priciest items on the menu, by the server. That all said, I'm not sure if the price point is reasonable given KL standards. I'd personally find them more on the pricey side of things, so value for money is definitely not entirely there.

Surrounding is comfortable with some hip hop acoustic songs. Food is nice just that the ayu fish got a bit bitter (acceptable level). Must try their OZ lamb skewer and cheese chicken skin wrapped with prawn. Their cold ramen (not in menu) is also a must try.

Heard this place just open about 2 months ago. Good food and nice ambience. The staff there are also very helpful. Food was really fresh. We enjoyed the Yakitori (esp the prawn wrapped in chicken skin- prawn was super fresh). Unagi was great as well. Rice was cook very well. Food here is full of flavour and I would really recommend people to come and give this place a try.

Getting There

Stay hungry, my friends, and remember: life's too short for bad food,
