    Surprising find, hidden in Parramatta. The dishes were of great quality, albeit overpriced for the amount given and compared to other restaurants offering the same food. Range of Japanese cocktails and desserts had the highest variety I've seen from a Japanese restaurant in Sydney yet! Service was polite and accommodating, but could use more smiles. Interior design and atmosphere was quiet, peaceful and refined - very "zen" given the outdoor area in the middle of the restaurant.

    Lovely setting and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. The food was all top quality. I had some of the best gyoza I have eaten. The meat dishes were delicious and the sashimi plate was fresh and vibrant with some top quality fish. I enjoyed a wonderful sake mojito, but it was hard to decide just which of all the cocktails they had to offer. Pricing isn't overly expensive as we fed a family of three adults for $180ish and we were all full and very satisfied. It was our second time dining here and we'll be going back again, I'm sure.

    Loved our experience from beginning to end. Yes the portions can be larger, but they were enough. The quality of the meat was superb and overall ambience great.

    Tastiest kingfish sashimi I’ve ever eaten. Good cocktails, yummy sashimi, good entrees and the bbq cooked at table was tasty and fun.

    Came here once for lunch before -quick service, melting wagyu, so I decided to book this place for a corporate dinner of 7. Behold, we could only book for 5:30pm or 7:30pm seating. The male staff on the phone kindly suggested we turn up at 7pm as I said 6pm was ideal with some travelling from the Blue Mountains! We turn up at 7pm on the dot to find our table is not ready so we waited at the bar. 7:35pm came, when I waved one of the waitstaff over, she wanted to take our order when I reminded her we are waiting for our table. She had forgotten. We were seated soon after however the first thing that came to our table was one entree - Agedashi tofu after one hour. We didn't see anything for another 30mins where it all started to come at once. It was just an unpleasant start to the experience. When we asked to order another 2 wagyu, the waitstaff came back about 15-20mins later to tell us it would take 30mins to reach our table. Mind you, we were asking for the wagyu oyster blade at $33 for 8 slices for us to bbq. This comes out raw, not cooked for us. They may have their wagyu frozen and perhaps the 30mins is to cover the thawing time? Not sure which but they must know better that people would choose a wagyu for bbq during winter and dinners. They ran out of the warabimochi and one of the dango in desserts. The waitstaff only told us after our order. They don't seem to communicate well with the kitchen staff or vice versa. Perhaps a digital ordering system would be useful that would live update and we wouldn't have to keep getting up and walking down to the bar to grab a waitstaff because they're running around nowhere to be seen. As a group, was very disappointing and embarrassing for the restaurant. Food was delicious but would not recommend a dinner here. It just so happens a footy match and a winter family event was on the same evening, regardless, we didn't feel looked after for paying $300 at the final bill inc. a 2% credit card surcharge (my card is savings but I only had my mobile app on me).

    I visited this place about a week ago on a Saturday. The place and views were amazing, the service impeccable. I truly believe this is a hidden gem in Parramatta. I felt like one of the Wagyu cuts were a bit dry though it is the best Japanese BBQ in the Western area I have found so far.

    Good food but on the expensive side. When you taste the food, you will realise that it is worth it. Beef selection was so good and worth it. Pork belly was ok. Sashimi platter was fresh and delicious. My friend who does not like sashimi actually enjoyed it at this place. The cocktail sake mojito I had was not that great. Service was good. Very polite and accommodating. Good ambience as well.

    was very good and authentic japanese bbq. I've been a few times and have enjoyed it each time. Would highly recomment it, it is slightly on the pricy seze (approx $50/person)
