This restaurant is hard to miss especially if you frequent Ring Road Parklands and this is because if their large illuminating neon lights.  What once used to be a place to catch a cup of coffee with your mates after work now sprung up to become a fully-fledged Japanese restaurant devoted to all your fishy needs- no pun intended. Think in the lines of all you can eat California rolls: chicken, meat and vegetable. Even more fascinating is the conveyor belt that displays the delicious sushi: – If you have a birthday dinner around the corner then this is the place you should be eyeing, it’ located on the ground floor of Kenrail Towers.
