We came here as we were staying in the grand millennium. I am not a seafood eater and this was also the second time I had ever had proper Japanese food. I was very impressed the tambura vegetables were to die for and the teriyaki chicken was amazing. I would come back here for sure

The food and service was great, convenient location as we were just staying at the hotel, not too expensive.

Wow! Wait fro the late sitting (8:15), it was a great experience. the host (Grace) was extremely helpful with advice on eating and preparation of dishes. The food was fresh and extremely well presented, at $85 a head maybe a little over priced but it was a buffet, so go with an empty stomach!

Dined with 12 colleagues. Had a teppanyaki experience. Always lots of fun! The chef got a couple of orders mixed up, but he did it cheerfully. The food was very tasty, especially the sashimi entree. Good times with a group, would recommend for a meal with a difference.

My wife and I dined here after a movies night. Katsura is located in the old Rendezvous hotel which is now known as the Grand Millennium. The setting of the restaurant is inviting and staff are attentive. The food selection is awesome, we had the California style sushi rolls which were AAAA++++. Other dishes such as the salmon and prawn rice dishes are great as well. Thursday and Friday features the seafood buffet option as well. The price is up there, but the food is great too.
