When you first enter they will serve you a non-alcholic Welcome Drink on a wooden leaf platter. The Welcome Drink was a mix of pineapple and orange juice.
Their menu is in English and Chinese, and about 70% of the menu has pictures. What attracted me to this restaurant was the staircase Omakase sets! Other than the staircase Omakase sets, the way they display their sashimi sets are really unique. Instead of the staircase, it’s placed on a log platter. Very instagrammable !
What is Omakase?
In Japan, Omakase is letting the chef decide the dishes for you. Normally, they would choose the freshest items of that day. But that depends on the restaurant. Basically, the term “Omakase” is either Chef’s Selection or ‘Daily Special’. The items could be different each time you visit. It’s entirely based on what is the freshest items.
We were the first customers of the day! (Since we arrived around 12PM) There was a couple of deliveries (Lots of fresh seafood!!!)!
We ordered two different types of Omakases. The top staircase is the 9 Course Sushi Omakase Set [Omakase Sushi in Fishman Style, 魚男九段寿司滥 9貫] that comes with udon. The bottom staircase is the 9 Course Sashimi Omakase Set [Omakase Sashimi in Fishman Style, 魚男九段盛剌身] that comes with rice.
Cost: HKD $ 596 【CAD $98】
The chef recommended we start from the bottom to the top for the Sushi Omakase Set. And start from the top to the bottom for the Sashimi Omakase Set.
Since I wanted to have the sushi last, we had the sashimi sets first!

The quality of each item isn’t bad. But I would recommend eating it when it arrives! I think we took too long taking photos. The sashimi felt really warm… like room temperature sashimi…
Presentation – 4/5
Service – 3.5/5
Quality – 3.5/5 (This could be my fault for not eating it when the waitress first placed down the sets)
Overall, the experience was nice! But I probably wouldn’t come back unless they have another ‘special’ presentation item.
