This was my first meal out in Noosa and the restaurant looked very inviting. The menu was comprehensive and as well as the old favourites there were a few twists on the themes. The presentation was superb even if it did all arrive at once, liquid nitrogen being a nice touch. I had to wait for my Sake which they seem to have forgotten and the chef spotted this and threw in some kingfish with my superb sashimi half way through. The soft shell crab was excellent and served with a superb tangy aioli which complimented it nicely. All in all it would have got the highest rating were it not for the service but the food was excellent.

We found this restaurant nestled in the alley off the main street and loved the quality and food. The staff were charming and very quick, and the food had us licking the plates.

Around 8 pm, my friend and I were on a search for a small dinner snack to end our day in Noosa. On arrival, a waitress was already clearing most of the tables though the restaurant wouldn’t close for at least an hour. After being seated at a mediocre table, a waiter (who we assumed also had some kind of managing position) rushed us into ordering drinks. As non alcoholic drinkers, and not in the mood for soft drinks, we just wanted water. A choice that provoked a rude comment from the waiter. This same person was constantly making loud criticising comments towards his employees throughout our visit. We ordered some raw fish dishes, which were way below our expectations (regarding how they were priced). We felt very unwelcome and left as soon as we could.

Delicious, light, fresh and friendly service. Couldn’t have been more satisfied with the whole experience. We sat at the bar and chatted with the chef while he prepared meals - thoroughly mesmerised and entertained. We’ll be back for sure!

Had a few issues with part of our order not arriving then when it did arrive it was wrong so took a while to sort it out and get our meals. They did offer us free drinks for the inconvenience and were very apologetic.
Food was high quality and very delicious. The steak skewers were so succulent. Also enjoyed the pork skewers and chicken teryaki.
Meals are rather expensive for the quantity.
