The signature nabe is extremely amazing. Skewers are also very delicious though a bit overpriced. However the food is served in a very slow pace.

It’s been more than a year since our last visit and the menu changed a bit. We tried many different skewers this visit - there’re hits and misses, quite some are on the too salty end for us. The winning dish on the night is the pork gyoza ramen and the
Sukiyaki skewer. A must try. Service is very friendly but we struggled to get attention at least trice on the night.

Goryon San's a beautiful restuarant capturing Japanese fine dining. We made a reservation and got front row seats watching the chefs cook. The staff was also very helpful and welcoming which made the dining experience all the better.

This is a lovely venue for a special occasion. The Degustation menu was not only delicious but well presented (and it meant we did not have to fuss with deciding what to order).

I would only change one thing: I prefer that the courses be brought out with longer times between, as there is a lot to be said for giving the diners time to soak in the atmosphere, and have time to chat. I did ask for that, but I it did not happen.

Interesting that on making the booking I was asked if this was a special occasion (birthday) but there was no follow-up or any mention of this during the evening.... so not sure why it was asked in the first place. I did not mind - I am only curious.

Their skewers are very tasty and unique. Also the draft beer is nice. It is very difficult usually to get a table, so book in advance.

My partner and I had the $89 omakase and chose the ramen option for our shared main. The skewers were so good! Generous portion sizes and great value for money. I have already recommended to friends and will def be back again!

The food serviced was all very average. Whilst the quality of the food was good, for the price paid under the set package, which was the only product on offer, the taste was not up to scratch. All yakitori are cooked using a gas stove, not the traditional charcoal which gives it the unique flavours. Service was great and most pleasant and personalised but food taste definitely needs improvement.

Would not recommend.

staff are all freindly and the food was amazing. As Japanese national, this place made me homesick. It reminds me of everything about the good Japanese restaurant in Japan.
Presentaion, Politeness and most of all quality of the food. Thank you and we will be back again.
