Although the restaurant has been around in Cebu in years, I have just recently discovered this place. I fell in love instantly. I have not been to Japan yet (hopefully, soon) so I could not vouch for its authenticity based on taste. I can say, though, that of the times I have been there, my companions and I are the only non-Japanese customers.
My favorites are:
Aside from the food looking and tasting delicious, it also not as expensive as the other Japanese restaurants in town. You may see for yourself. Here's a summary of their menu.
P.S Do not order the ramen. They are not known for excellent ramen.
