We loved the food and it's innovative tastes, but felt constrained by having to order from a set menu. What if you don't actually want to eat 3 courses? The tables are a little too close together, meaning that you can hear next door's conversations. Service was a little too slow after the entree.

Very impressed with the food and staff at this restaurant. I would go here any day. We had the $55 set menu. And everything was first class. Super fresh and superb taste. The only letdown was it was very noisy there needs to be some soft furnishings to absorb some of the noise. If the food was not so superb... More

My wife and I had the Yokubari set - the 5 course meal, a gift courtesy of a good friend. You had two choices for each of the 5 items. Except for the dessert, you had 3 choices. The seating was cosy. We sat close to another couple, so we both could hear what each other was saying. I think... More

It didn't take long for me to ask why it had been so long since my last visit here. The ambience, service and food are all excellent. The restaurant lends itself equally well to large celebration meals and more casual small dinners. Although the choices are based on set menus, the choice is still pretty good, and at 3, 4... More

4 course menu, selected the sashimi salmon, the caviar pasta, the steak and I forget dessert.. We had this with a delicious red wine. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere in the restaurant was very good - until a group of rowdy ladies joined - then it became a little noisy. The standout dish was the caviar pasta. It's...

We ate there last Saturday Duck....was it??? Tuff & Tasteless & I mean tasteless it could have been leather. Fish...tasteless mush more like it, Perch, some farmed fresh water slop. Not at all what you would have expected in a Japanese restaurant in WA where we have magnificent SEAFOOD. Sauce on this dish must have come from a French recipe... More

A really interesting and imaginative menu that does the concept of fusion justice. The strong Japanese focus, blended with stylish, modern ingredients and presentation, makes for a sensational meal. The service is good and staff are knowledgeable and attentive, The setting is clean and modern rather than warm and cozy. My only criticism is that it has a set menu.... More
