Absolutely and positively overwhelmed by the degustation menu.
The oyster!!!!

Obviously presentation is fabulous. Service is sharp and friendly.

But the pleasure is in the exquisite succession of flavours within a dish or throughout the course of dinner.
Fantastic

Lilotang is what you would call a modern Japanese restaurant. The food was very good, but the atmosphere leaves a little to be desired, it was noisy and the decor a take of a very modern Japanese theme.. There was 8 of us dining. We had one of the banquets.But, we sat on a long bench table, on a long bench seat, which was not very comfortable, which we had to shared with other people. I suppose this is what you call modern, but The Chairman and Yip, which is next door, is also a "modern" restaurant, but with a real sense of style.
The restaurant is targeted at under 40's. the background music was loud, and really did not allow us to talk amongst ourselves.
It is expensive,as are most Japanese restaurants can be. I do not mean this to be derogatory, but it is just a fact.

While staying at the Burbury Hotel next door, we had room service from Lilotang. We ordered the Chargrilled Scotch Fillet, which was absolutely delicious. In fact it was so nice we ordered it twice! The food arrived in a disposable bento box, was piping hot and delivered very promptly. The only problem was that they only have chopsticks, no forks, so we had to eat with a spoon. We were going to go to the restaurant, but ran out of time, so it is on our to-do list next time we visit Canberra.

Dined here for an office lunch and was not disappointed. As there were a number of us we chose the banquet which was a good choice and well worth the money. The food kept coming and the portions per person were plentiful. The waiting staff were helpful and friendly. The decor of the restaurant is very modern and inviting. The only downfall is that there is no free parking in the area but that won't stop me returning.

Lilotang is a great modern Japanese restaurant conveniently located in Barton (Canberra) at the foot of the Burbury Hotel. I’ve been to Lilotang several times now over a number of years and it has remained consistently good, with an evolving menu. The standout dishes of our most recent visit there were the slow-cooked pork belly with cucumber salsa and Japanese mustard miso dressing, the poached ocean trout with wasabi mascarpone, almond and radicchio, and an excellent chargrilled scotch fillet with miso and spice dressing. Lilotang also has a great selection of sake and Japanese beers. Highly recommended.
