TATLER TIPS

The kitchen turns out an ex­ten­sive menu that leaves din­ers spoilt for choice.

Veer off the beaten path with the maguro taru­taru with raw tuna top­ping an av­o­cado base. Or try the dragon roll, which comes highly rec­om­mended and justly so.

The house spe­cial­ity Bos­ton lob­ster tep­pa­nyaki shiro miso cheese will not dis­ap­point. Fresh cubes of lob­ster are grilled with a sweet sauce that com­ple­ments the briny flavour of the crus­tacean per­fectly.

The richly flavoured and uber ten­der Wagyu komiyaki that’s cooked in a mor­eish gravy will be a hit with meat lovers.
