Great little Japanese Restaurant located close to Australia Fair Shopping Center in the Chinese Mall. Typical Japanese menu with pictures which reminded me at my time in Japan. Service was very courtesy and food was good, and great value, 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 green tea for $46. Outdoor seating on the walkway is available.

Great food as usual, standard is always great and quality and freshness unquestioned. Only downside is drinks service is rather slow, believe they would sell more if diners not left waiting.

Best Japanese in Southport. The Wagyu steak entree as well as a main is an absolute must. Great fresh seaweed salad and curry chicken. Great service and very well priced!

This place can be summed up in two words, TEH BEST! Its fresh, quick and delicious every time. I work 5 mins walk from this place and I have nothing bad to say about it, it has character, great service and they sell imported quality Japanese bier. My favorite is either the pork katsudon or the karage chicken with rice/salad.... More

Easy relaxed Japanese food in southport really worth the visit. Not expensive but bring your own wine it's basically beer and Sake.

Loved the food, relaxed quirky atmosphere and good service. Went with the Bento boxes and would happily return. Tried the Japanese at Sea World Resort and Maruya was far superior.
