This is a lovely establishment where the tranquility of the already seated customers is respected by separating the reception area from the dining room. Our table is attractively presented and the waitress is friendly and available. The wine list is short but interesting with French, Israeli and Italian wines. However, the focus is clearly more on sakes and cocktails, served around an imposing bar. In terms of the cuisine, the chef takes us on an intriguing voyage to Japan with, to start, an astonishing grouper tataki, in terms of the quality of the fish and the unexpected hot sesame oil, making this simple dish something altogether more interesting. The filet of salmon, a lovely piece of fish, served with karashi lemon butter and sweet potato mash is classically executed without any surprises. Finally, we find our way back to the Middle East to enjoy a typically Israeli, popular dessert. It’s daring, but here it is par for the course to merge cultures and the malabi and very conventional Kadaif , are in their element. The cuisine shifts between Japanese interpretations of classic dishes , the essentials of Japanese gastronomy, and a few pleasantly surprising innovative touches.
