This is a small family owned and operated Japanese café. The décor and atmosphere is pleasant and the staff very accommodating. Its BYO and the quality of the food is excellent. Would definitely recommend for a casual but delicious lunch or dinner.

Visited this cafe again last week after a long break. Was pleasantly surprised at the new expanded menu and food didn't disappoint. The cafe is fairly basic but clean and prices reasonable. Friendly staff and great food!

It was very nice to have family dinner. The sashimi was really fresh and great. I believe it is the best Japanese restaurant in South - Eastern part of Melbourne.
