Being a Izakaya, the highlights are the wide range of drinks, including sake and Japanese beer. The food is designed to accompany the drinks, so don't expect five-star sushi or sashimi, though I must recommend the teriyaki beef-ribs in jalapeño sauce.. juicy, tender and a generous portion. Prices a wee bit on the high side.

We went there for dinner. The service was impeccable and the food delicious (but a tiny bit pricey). The zucchini flowers, the Brussels sprouts (on the specials menu) and the tofu dish were amazing. My friends enjoyed the tuna and salmon sushi as well. Great option for casual dinner in a nice setting.

Think about a Japanese restaurant, and think over again. you can find the classical succulents like many other japan cuisine, but then you dive in all this sharing entrees and mains delicacies, with flavors you didn't taste before and you realise you are sitting somewhere with a unique cuisine. staff are great, we came on a late service and knowing...

Great little place. Awesome vibe with great decor. We had a 6pm booking as we had a show nearby at 8 and we barely made it. The menu font was difficult to read but Waiters were very friendly and attentive and happy to explain. Food did take a little while to come out (we had a 6pm booking as we... More

Beautiful combination of flavours! Can't believe this restaurant isn't in the top25 in Sydney' tripadvisor ranking. Bravo to the daring chef/s to think out of the box!

We went for dinner. It was really busy for a Thursday. From the time we came in till we left, staff were really nice, friendly and smiley. We ordered bonito, Brussels sprouts and beef ribs. Everything was yummy and I loved the smokiness of the bonito and the ribs, and the hint of citric in the Brussel sprouts dish. The... More

The menu is inventive and the food so exquisitely tasty. The service is helpful, attentive and friendly. But you need to book - it is popular (because the food is so good). Our experience was however spoilt by rubbish music, played too loudly! What is it with good restaurants who do this - the music must be for the staff... More

The service here is reasonable. On a Saturday night, you have to wait to get a table and the tables are cramped. Food is serviced here in share plates and the selection of mains is quite limited. There is a limited selection of sushi and sashimi, with all options lacking in flavor. The wine menu is quite limited. Overall, Izakaya... More

Big fan of the food and a bigger fan of the atmosphere - friendly and attentive staff and music that's right up my alley. Would definitely recommend visiting at least once!

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
