“One of our favorite Sushi spots. Make sure to be here before 7pm as you otherwise will end up in a line - it's just very known and liked. The food is not the cheapest but not super pricey either - little above average. The quality is great though.”

“Smash-grilled, the Omakase Cheeseburger is finger-licking good. You have to really bite into it to enjoy all the fresh ingredients. Although some complain that the burger size is rather small, at least you know you can finish it without feeling full to the brim.”
