My boyfriend and I dined here for our anniversary. It was our first time eating here and it is definitely our new favourite restaurant! The food was so fresh and tasted incredible. We got the tuna pizza, crispy rice, tuna sushi, salmon sushi, wagyu tacos, wagyu fried rice, and the ‘show me the roll’. The portions are the perfect size for allowing you to order and try many different menu items. The service is outstanding; our food came so fast and the wait staff are always around making sure you have a great experience. When booking a reservation I specified that it was for an anniversary celebration, and when we ordered dessert they brought it out on a platter that said ‘happy anniversary’! It was definitely a wonderful surprise! We will absolutely be coming back. 10/10 experience

The food and atmosphere is amazing here! Take a look through their instagram page for photos of all their food - The crispy rice is something everyone needs to try. The staff were very friendly and explained any dishes that I had questions about, as well as suggesting the perfect amount of food for our table to order. We suggest ordering 2-4 plates per person (to share of course) - the quality and plating of the food is stunning!! Would definitely go back for a special occasion.

Tuna/Mushroom Pizza is a must order. Followed by grilled king crab leg. The upstairs main dining room is opened now and is beautiful, definitely better than the dust high car traffic patio.

Fantastic and fun place to be. Food was excellent and tasted great for a “fine dining” experience. My ONLY gripe was with the lychee lime drink - I found that it was not worth the $10 for the simplicity of the drink.

We went during the pandemic and early opening post 3rd wave, so we were seated outside across from a construction site.

Noise pollution aside, my fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. I can see why the restaurant is owned by a Michelin star chef!

Can’t wait to go back, but for an indoor experience this time :)

Portions could be bigger for the prices. Outdoor patio seating was affected by construction and loud cars and was a bit chilly. Heat lamps would help. Otherwise excellent food and service!
