We ordered a lot of different bentos or set meals but the food came out nothing like they stated in their menu, nothing but a lair, their Chef are not Japanese either and also the waiters there are also very rude, if you wanted a pleasant dinning experiences, the best advice is to never go to this crappy restaurant.

"The deal was: buy one main meal get the second free" When we asked her for the offer, she replied: "we don't have this deal anymore and it is last years offer" to our dismay we reminded her that the...

Love the food here. We've had the hotpots on 2 occasions and the food is fantastic. The staff are really helpful. The restaurant does look like a very cheap cafe with cheap tables and chairs but you can overlook that for the great food. The service is prompt, polite and helpful. I think it's BYO. Its got an okay atmosphere.... More

The sukiyaki is extremely good value. I have eaten Sukiyaki plenty of times in Australia and Japan and Hibari does it the best. Good value with a groupon voucher for $29.

We had the Hot pot experience for two which could probably feed 3 or 4 people. Nice location with very friendly staff.

Unfortunately we wouldn't go back and are making sure that we tell other travellers that are staying with us not to bother. The salmon in the sashimi was so strong smelling that it was almost rancid. Our son who usually devours a ramen hardly touched his. He said the meat tasted funny and I tasted some of the broth and... More

We went for dinner here early on a Monday night and there were almost no people when we arrived. Place was really bust when we left tho. The decor it pretty unprepossessing but the food was great.
