    Their food was delicious and fresh The pan seared chicken breast and miso creamy sauce is the best chicken dish I’ve ever had. I didnt know chicken could get that soft

    Large sashimi was lovely, the Udon vege were tempura - this should be explicitly stated as "tempura vegetables" so people who don't want deep fried food are aware. I didn't know that it would be deep fried. The 4 piece baked Salmon was as expected/standard. Overall a lovely place to eat at with waterfront views and clean, non oily and non spicy food.

    Could not fault them. The waitress recommended some dishes and we had a combination of the smaller grazing dishes and the larger ones. Everyone she recommended was delicious. We had booked and got a table right near the water so with international guests this was fantastic. When the bill came I was surprised at the value for money. Overall it was a really good experience.

    My impression that it’s more about the drinks and ambience than the food. Pork tonkatsu was good, sushi was fine, chicken teriyaki was disappointing - almost positive the chicken is pre grilled in batches as it came out to our table just 2 minutes after placing our order and it was like warm and rubbery. I wondered if this was the Fork discount quality. Ambience is pleasant, music is fun.

    The sushi was superb, and the environment was nice. However, the other dishes, especially the karrage, was a let down. It was overcooked and very dry. The service was questionable as we had difficulties getting attention from the waitresses to take our orders. It seemed like attentions were only given to collecting empty plates as one of the waitresses even tried to take the dish when we weren't done with it.

    Wonderful staff and beautiful food, particularly enjoyed the queen bee cocktail, the crab croquettes and the grilled pork belly. Will be back to try the whisky flight!

    Lovely restaurant for a lazy afternoon lunch on the yarra. The food is consistently good and the service yesterday was fabulous. We will be back.

    food is good but if without 50% offer, its a bit overpriced. service was just so so, our food arrived, but we have to ask to get the cutlery to bring to the table. services didn't match up with the price. environment is nice though.

    Delicious food. Friendly staff. I would happily visit again. Sashimi was excellent, and the wagyu main is a must - so melty tender. Is that 120 characters yet, Fork people?

    Beautiful view by the river. We ordered the pork tonkatsu and wagyu beef udon. I love love love the tonkatsu, it was tender and has absolutely no fat! Wagyu udon was nice but i really am not a big fan of udon.

    The sushi was great, make sure to get the shake aburi (grilled salmon) and the spicy tuna roll. However, the cooked foods took much longer than expected to come and we had a big gap in between dishes.

    Food was fresh and flavoursome. We had an early lunch so place was quiet but was great to be able to talk without yelling and they were happy to split the bill.
