Had a great meal that included looks of small traditional Japanese dishes (all cooked). Not normally a big fan of miso but the pumpkin miso custard was great. Wait staff were very attentive and the chef made the night entertaining. I left full.

Delicious authentic Japanese food with excellent attentive service. Highly recommend the plum wine. There was a conference dinner starting half way through our meal yet we were looked after the whole time.

I had dinner at Arakawa with three friends. The food was sensational, the staff very helpful and the atmosphere lovely. Very traditional Japanese. Good wine list and the sesame ice cream for dessert was yum!

We dined at the Arakawa restaurant and everything from the salad through to the Tempura were excellent. I even had dessert and I had the Triple chocolate nanami chilli and macadamia bomb, orange basil seed syrup and it was unbelievably nice.

Looking at a gift voucher here. Worth it? And how much would the teppinyaki be worth per person? Thanks!

Hi Tracey, definitely worth it, we simply went for the set menu, which I think was $60 per head depending on what options you go with, but it still provided plenty of variety. Enjoy! Cheers Michael
