We had been here twice. Food is always excellent, but the staff sometimes let us wait for 10 or more minutes, after our plates got empty, and we had a feeling like we are being overlooked on purpose. After some more minutes occurred another extreme, all of the waitresses one by one realized, that we were still waiting for something and each of them asked, whether we had ordered or we wanna make new order... I will be coming here for food again and pack big portion of patience with me...

Been there in the past, but this time we had the best sushi ever!

Food/shushi:
As a sushi lover, I really love eating a lot of it.
(+) Their buffet menu is very-very filling, that's why we keep having it, not only because it combines both sushi and other small classic plates like gyoza, teriyaki chicken, spring rolls or seaweed salad, but it includes a variety of other plates like soups, ice cream flavors, etc.. Their buffet is COMPLETE!
The sushi's texture is pleasantly sticky, the ''filling's'' flavor is balanced. Sushi bites have a fair portion.
The miso soup was warm enough. Tempura prawn and clamari are crunchy when fryied (the coating).
The salad's vegetables and greens are always fresh.
Our less favorite is the temaki sushi. It's not our thing.

Service:
Always polite and fast, but this time a young Maltese girl exceeded our expectations. Congratulations for having her, she was genuinly smiling!

Speed of recieving the plates:
It might take a little bit longer when busy, but not that long...

At last but not least, watching their aquarium is always relaxing :)

I have visited this restaurant many times, and have always been satisfied with the food and the service. The salmon sashimi melts in your mouth, and the Edamame (soy beans) are divine. I really enjoy the music and atmosphere as well, the fountain/waterfall upstairs is very pleasant. My servers were very accommodating and happy to explain or give recommendations.
