I was already full after half portion of my chirashi meal set, the sashimi was fresh and the rice was well seasoned. The roasted eggplant was delicious as well! It was my first try and fell in love with it straightaway. Only if the staff could be more friendly, it would have made a perfect place to dine in.

Popped in at 8pm on a Wednesday night. Had prawn and avocado rolls and tempura scallops. Beautifully cooked and prepared. Very enjoyable. My son had the tempura prawn and it too was delicious. Go there it's great!!

My wife was asked to leave a near empty restaurant at 1300hrs on 05/10 because "she had a parm". MY wife had already paid for an order and was waiting to collect same when the manager ejected her from the restaurant for having "a pram". Staff objected but the manager waved them away. A contravention of the discrimination act. Awaiting... More

Their lunchtime special Bento Box is the best ever. Authentic Japanese food great atmosphere I can't wait to go back. Make sure you have a booking as this restaurant is often booked out and to watch the amazing food go by and not have the pleasure of tasting it would be devastating.

The freshest of fresh fish, friendly service and great value for money. Sat at the bar which is extra special as you watch the chef slice the fish.

This restaurant never fails in the quality & freshness of its seafood. We have never had a bad meal there.We have been regulars since they opened years ago. They have a good following judging by the familiar faces we see there. Staff are friendly & helpful. High end food warrants high end prices. But it is worth paying for quality.

Very busy and almost always a booking is required...even for lunch. The food is very traditional Japanese fair and is always prep aired well. The staff are all Japanese and unless you speak the language are sometimes hard to understand. The service is however very friendly. The best part is that compared with other Japanese restaurants, the food is very... More

We had lunch on the weekend: a chicken curry and chirashizushi (sashimi on rice). Normally you'd expect both dishes to come out at the same time, but the curry came out first while the sashimi took forever. My partner had finished his curry before my sashimi had even made it to the table. The sashimi was also way too thick,... More

Conveniently located with good street parking. I would recommend all dishes but the sashimi. It was far too thickly sliced to be edible. The service was above average, probably a little too slow at clearing tables though. It certainly is well priced.
