The restaurant is in prime location of Southbank, with water front & great view. Foods is just average, there are not many choices in the menu, not sure if it is because we book with The Forks and were given different menu. The restaurant is very busy on a Sunday night, ie. service is a bit slow. It is good value with The Forks half price dining.

Lamb ribs and sashimi plate were amazing and definitely the highlights. The sashami 10 piece at $34 was actually quite good portions with each piece of fish being about double the usual size at other restaurants. Also got the pork belly, chicken karaage, deep fried eggplant. Which were all pleasant eats.

So surprised with the variety and freshness of the raw fish here! The fish was succulent, moist and gleaming. The portions are on the small side and we probably wouldn't go there if not for a fab discount on the food. The Happy Hour lasts until 6.30pm and it wasn't the nastiest wine in the world! Bonus! Service was very efficient and friendly. Again, would go for the variety of sashimi, which was above and beyond what you can usually get in Melbourne.

Great place by the Yarra for lunch or dinner. Fantastic offer with the Fork 50% off deal. Happy hour before 6.00pm is fantastic too.

Great sushi / sashimi. Really fresh and perfect. Also enjoyed the Wagyu beef main which is perfectly charred and tender, wasn't seasoned so you get to enjoy the real beef flavour. Service was perfect also.
