    Chicken katsudon was soggy and had an upset stomach after the meal. Slow service - main food came out 30 mins apart, appetisers came out with mains

    Got the sashimi and some sushi rolls to share with my wife. The sashimi was a bit disappointing as the tuna didn't taste that fresh so we left it. The sushi roll were about $15 each and they were bland as they didn't season the rice very much and also used jasmine rice instead of using sushi rice. Service was poor none of the staff came past to ask how our meal was going or top up our water. We had to ask them twice to get a top up.

    We attended for a quick cheap pre-theatre meal and were not disappointed - once ordered, food arrived quickly and the portions were generous, though the ratio of noodles/rice to meat/veg was heavily skewed in favour of the rice/noodles. Dishes were tasty. Would return.

    Food is not authentic japanese. Order sushi and sukiyaki, both were disappointing. Service was slow and service crew seems to be unsure what to do. Luckily was there with 30% discount, otherwise not worth the money.

    Nice service and location. Salmon very tasty but slightly overcooked. Mixed tempura good. Japanese fish cake bit over processed

    This place was great as setting. Service was really good and food was delicious. Large selection with good drinks. Dessert was interesting as I can see a lot of Asian options.

    The food was very enjoyable however we found the service lacked. We weren’t ever offered any more drinks once we finished our first glass and also all our food came out at the same time. We did order it all in one go but it would have been nicer to have a dish at a time especially on the smaller table. I would visit again because the food was yummy

    Really delicious food, fast service, no complaints :) though I'm not sure why my review must have at least 120 characters, there's not much more I can say...

    Really tasty food and came out quickly! The staff were friendly but took a little while for them to take our order, had to keep waving someone down when we needed something. Overall, really good!

    Overall, it can be described as fairly good experience and service although the staff come across a little rushed. The bar top was filled with dirty glasses which suggest staff aren't coping.

    Once again we enjooyed a pre-concert dionner of hand made sushi rolls. Tey are freshly made a nutritious and sits lightly in the stomach, which is important when you are going to a classical music concert afterwrds.
