    The atmosphere is beautiful and elegant, just like what you would expect in a high class traditional japanese restaurant. The waitstaff are very kind, detail oriented and swift with their excellent service. The food is of top quality and taste, and authentic as it can get. As a Japanese person myself, I highly recommend this place for a lovely dinner with friends, family or even colleagues and clients.

    Omakase sushi course is really good by professional Japanese Sushi chef and value for money. Also recommended Sake set fits to sushi course too.

    Always perfectly cooked and high quality! Love this place. My favourite so far (I have come here before) is the eggplant and also the steaks. The nigiri rice is great.

    Visited on my wife’s birthday, they never mentioned at the booking stage that there’s no sushi on Sundays! After getting over the initial shock, we decided to have the wagyu Shabu Shabu set. The dish itself actually surpassed expectations, the local wagyu was enjoyable enough but the Japanese Kagoshima beef was absolutely heavenly!

    All the dish we ordered was excellent. The waitress was attentive. Only negatives were they ran out of some ingredient. We will visit this restaurant again.

    It was Sunday dinner but looks dark and no BGM so feeling like dinner After the closed time. Aussie Wagyu was hard and bit smelly and luckily we had a extra wagyu from Kagoshima, Japan. Volume was nice. Service was okay but kids were noisy from other tables and hitting partition many times and couldn’t relax.

    The food was excellent, the service was really great. Cudos to the staff for their patience and excellent service at another table which had numerous requests and questions. Some cooking odours drifted into the dining area (hopefully an easy fix)

    $50 degustation available Mon/Tue night is wonderful for pescatarians or for people (like me) who feel cannot get enough fish in your diet on a regular basis!! A wonderful array of carefully curated dishes including a unique assortment of sashimi and sushi. Will definitely back and hope that they will continue to offer this amazing degustation! Thank you again Shintaro-san and all at Goldclass Daruma!

    Freshness of the sushi and quality was great. The service needs improvement. The staff was a bit timid and was a little inexperienced... im sure it'll become better over time. Also the lighting of the restaurant, needs to improve. The bar seating / section more would be better with warmer softer lighting, rather than yellowish, fluro lights - which was a little uncomfortable and unsettling.

    The food overall was nice, I would love to try the Omakase to determine the quality of the seafood and rice. Unfortunately there was an electrical issue during my dining resulting in the flickering of lights for alproximately 10 minutes which was fairly unpleasant.

    Everything is so perfectly good except if they can fix the light issue during the lunch time, but I know it's not their fault anyways.

    We really enjoyed the food and service was excellent. Just the seating arrangement needs to be improved. Not much space between tables.
