We dropped in for a quick bite and was pleasantly surprised. Good range to choose from off the sushi train,with also good menu if you wish to order from kitchen. When in Byron we would eat here regularly. Friendly attentive staff and fresh food, reasonable pricing. Great place would highly recommend.

This is my friends favorite Japanese place in Byron. We walked in high expectations, and we were not disappointed. The entrees were great, the sake delicious, even though the ingredients were exhausted early on. Would have loved to try the fish of the day, but had to settle for the tuna tartare salad. PS the chicken curry gave me food... More

Ate here on the weekend, inside is Sushi train out side is whatever you want from the extensive menu. We were outside, my husband had the "dragon", which was sushi shaped like a dragon with a prawn for a head. I had the haloumi tempura which was extremely delicious. The staff were all lovely and we will certainly be back

Four of us dined at Kinoko and it was delicious! We had four amazing main meals and they were cooked to perfection. The wait staff were super attentive and friendly. Highly recommend!

Staff were happy and helpful. It was a balmy evening and table at the window was just perfect. The food was delicious, we both chose to have main meals, my husband had steak and I had salmon, really fresh ingredients and plated attractively. Cost including beer and wine was reasonable. Will defintely eat there again.

We tried 7 different items from the sushi train and enjoyed them all. Staff very friendly. It's not fine dining & does not pretend to be. Just good food with a good vibe.

They have a sushi train here, but it's much more than that. The a-la-carte menu is extensive and not your cheap & cheerful fare - this is modern Japanese with a healthy twist. Think ingredients such as quinoa salad topped with rare grilled beef. Really nice but not exactly cheap.

Managed to get a table on a very busy night in the school holidays. Food was served promptly and staff were friendly. Stand out dish was Halloumi tempura starter, tempura was delicious.

This place had decent reviews so we decided to give it a crack. Only ordered 2 small-medium sized items off the menu (no drinks) and set us back nearly $40 Australian . The sashimi wasnt bad but definitely not worth the price and one of the rolls we got was pretty average and again not worth the price. Overall it... More
