We arrived for an early dinner around 6pm and this place filled up very quickly. The food was fairly standard and the waitresses were very busy so dishes did arrive periodically. We ordered sushi, ramen, dumplings and tepanyaki which was all nicely presented. An easy walk just up through Eat Street.

The girls were really sweet, place seemed fairly busy and nice colourful decor. We were told any order of sushi might to 10-15 mins but in fact it was much quicker. The range of sushi could be improved, and some of the sushi tasted really good and some like eel we didn't like :) could take or leave going back... More

You can tell how good the food is by the line outside the door at lunch time. A better seloection than some other Sushi bars, and always lovely, fresh, and tasty food.

Great service and sushi at a reasonable price, eat in or take away. The seaweed sushi and seafood tempura are to die for.

Haven't been here for 2 1/2 years as I've been living overseas but used to frequent this joint a lot. We all had the $10 set lunch which is such great value and tasted just like what I remembered. Service never used to be that great back in the day, we always went for the food only, but they have... More

I have had sushi from here twice now, a very nice selection to choose from, some sushi bars just don't have the selection but here they do, distinct flavour's and the rice was cooked to perfection, I will definitely be eating here again, and don't go to the other one, its just not in the same league.
