Suitable for lunch, kind of like a express Japanese restaurant.

The service was warm and welcoming. We choose this restaurant to celebrate a nice meal with family after our civil wedding. There is upstairs seating which provided a great space for our 2 families to sit on a long table. It was kid friendly with a little chalkboard to amuse the kids. Food was amazing and we got several dishes to share. Highly recommended.

The Chicken Katsu Udon is marked a favourite for a reason. It was so tasty and I left feeling very full.

Understaff leases to lack of service, staff did their best but it's impossible to run a full restaurant this size with 3 staff. Some items we had were great like the sushi and sashimi, eggplant and ice cream. Kids menu had way too much salt that my son wouldn't eat and the fried squid was too dry. Overall, not a pleasent dinner and not keen to return.

Arrived for a Saturday 630pm booking, downstairs was already 70% full. Requested to be seated upstairs for more private atmosphere and the tables hadn't been cleaned since lunch service - our table was cleared but not cleaned down. We had to explicitly call for service to order our first round of drinks, and then again for food some 55 minutes after we were seated. By this time two other tables had been seated, served, eaten and left! Other drinks were ordered as waitstaff delivered food because that was the only time they came to the table. Attention was poor and I could see several dishes being delivered to the wrong tables, including once to ours. Food was generally tasty but can become very expensive if you're seeking a varied selection to share. Ordered tempura tofu, teriyaki chicken, edamame, taro chips and squid tentacles (these were unfortunately cold and very hard from over frying by the time they were served). Won't be rushing back.

The service was great! Waitstaff were very friendly and understanding with us being late to our booking. The food was great too (for Japanese food in Australia, coming from someone who lived in Japan) but definitely pricier than usual Japanese food in Sydney.
