    Overall decent, however some of the dishes were let down by the strongly flavoured sauces drizzled over them which overwhelmed the fresh seafood.

    This restaurant is by far the best Asian restaurant let alone Japanese restaurant I have ever eaten at. The food and the service is absolutely second to nothing that I have experienced. I recommend you try the food provided at this place. Warren

    Only a handful of staff with full restaurant but you wouldn’t wait long for each dishes, I added another entree after 3 dishes, the staff brought it out before our main course which I was really pleasantly surprised the attention to details the staff shown. Would go back again! The tuna/salmon with cigar is definitely recommended.

    Exceptional quality Japanese cuisine for a reasonable price. Beautifully presented - our fresh sashimi came in a solid ice bowl, loved the tuna and salmon cigars served with edible ash in an ashtray, karaage chicken was delicious. Clearly a local favourite as it was almost full on a Thursday night.

    Very good Japanese restaurant with very well priced dishes for the quality that you get and the size of the portions. Second time there and wasn't disappointed. We know our Japanese food and this restaurant will become our "go to" place to eat Japanese. Highly recommended.

    We had a reservation however staff allocated us for a bar table. I had to personally requested to be seated on a proper table. Staffs didnt have knowledge on the foods they are serving. They had to ask them chef and came back to tell us. Food quality is okay, a bit overrated from what i can read from previous rating

    We had a lovely first dinner experience there and enjoyed ourselves! Loved the salmon cigar, and very reasonable pricing for a 2 person tasting menu. Service was quick and the food was inventive and delicious. We’ll be back!

    The food was amazing, cannot fault it. The quality the taste and all. The service was not bad either. What I didn't like was the ambient, as soon as I walked in I could smell something that smelt like some old wooden cutting boards that have never been washed and cleaned properly like something really damp. We were seated right in front of the toilet. That's is a total turn off.
