Beautiful food! We had the set menu for 2 with matching wine and highly recommend it! Bit pricey ($155 per person) without any food offer but good choice to celebrate a special occasion.

Declining food quality each time I go. The volcano roll used to be excellent with succulent scallops but this time it was overcooked, hard and had no taste. Other dishes were average.

Food was high quality; service was a little slow. Hot stone was not hot enough to properly sear and cook the wagyu beef.

Whilst well presented and fresh, not my kind of Japanese as too many sauces. A great sashimi platter however very expensive at full price. Also, going on an early Friday night the music was like we were at a rave - not very conducive to dinner conversation and the staff seemed harassed.

Food are fresh and delicious. I booked it with 50% food discount via the fork so it is cheap with what I normally paid for Japanese good, but even with 50% the food quality is still high in standard so worth to return again but I won’t order dessert again as dessert not that nice

We only spent $56 per person because of thr 50% dining discount. Otherwise it would have beem $112 per person. Food was absolutely amazing, sashimi platter was to die for. All the seafood was so fresh and well presented. Am not a fan of the baked cheesecake, pale in comparison to the stunning creme brulee!

We had the 50% off dimmi special. The atmosphere is always nice. Kobe has a good spot along the Yarra River. We all enjoyed the food. Service was quick and friendly.

Good food but expensive. Nice variety but small serving size. Service was good as well, polite and efficient.

With the 50% off from The Fork deal, this place was a BARGAIN....the food is absolutely amazing, some of the freshest and best sashimi I’ve had! The NIKKO banquet was just delicious-we were absolutely full afterwards!
