Wow, fantastic food, the 7 skewer set and the sukiyaki were absolutely amazing. The girl who served us was so lovely and friendly! The glass of wine I had was delish too and the deck is so relaxing to eat on.

Delicious fresh food and lovely staff. We had the pork gyoza, tuna sashimi, seafood tempura, chicken kerrange(?) and edamame. Would like to try the yakitori (skewers) next time. Ask for a table on the balcony

No trouble getting a table at the last minute. Friendly service, great food done well. Overpriced for what it was, but hey, this is Palm Cove, so expect to pay more than in the city
