    Coming in the restaurant has oily aroma throughout (need to do something please). The service is nice and quick. The food .. sashimi is awesome (very fresh and served on ice plate so optimal temperature), special makuro divine as well as kingfish sashimi, but the roll sushi just so so. The wine is perfect selection for japs food.

    Beautiful Japanese food with a twist. Loved the signature classics, the cigar and the tuna. The sashimi salad was huge. All dishes were presented beautifully and the service was fantastic.

    Returned to RKSan after a terrific experience last week and was delighted that our second visit was as good as the first. Once again we received a delicious complimentary dish and tried a sublime “special” of Toro salmon and cabbage. This wee restaurant is an absolute gem. There is a wine list and we did try both white n red but I did not reflect that in the amount spent and only took the food element into consideration hence around $40 per person

    Service was good, however the sushi was not as fresh as I expected. Slightly disappointed.

    Saw the Fork 50% promotion and proceeded to book for a Friday dinner but was told the discount only apply to lunch upon arrival, a big disappointment. Without the discount, the price is considered on the upside comparing the serving size. The sashimi served on an ice platter has the right temperature and fresh although the cut could be thicker. The tuna and salmon cigar is good but again is fairly expensive with only one cigar for each serving. Other dishes like the popcorn prwans, karrage chicken, nigiri and Hana are just average with the same seafood sauce used across those dishes rendering they all tasted the same. Service is prompt and polite and have also been treated with a complimentary desert. With a cost of over $140 for 3, we are still hungry when leaving the restaurant which is a setback.

    Went on a Fork promotion as I live close by, love Japanese cuisine and was not aware of this restaurant. While the restaurant is quite small I was overwhelmed by the array of dishes on offer and the quality of both the presentation and the taste. Ordered more than I needed just to trial. Awesome. Stand out dishes for me were the kingfish carpaccio and a tuna dish, called Maguro Hana, 4 bite sized pieces of tuna shaped like a flower and served on a bed of crispy warm sushi rice and a spicy mayonaise - simply devine. For lovers of Japanese cuisine this is a must go!

    Unassuming restaurant you could easily walk past, but definitely worth stopping by. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Food is amazing; try the Maguro Hana! It is quickly becoming a local favourite.
