    We were repeatedly asked to leave 30mins after being seated. This was very bad experience and it wasn't like this before. I'll write a google review about this bad experience.

    Amazingly fresh and superb sake choices. The tapas menu choices were perfect accompaniments. Had fresh cucumber pickles, sukiyaki beef and yaki-giri. Would recommend

    A great lunch spot during the week. Wide range of good quality bento boxes to choose from at a reasonable price. The service is very fast and courteous as well.

    The restaurant was very quiet - few diners, so the waiting staff had time and could have been more helpful when they spilt some of the cocktail when bringing it to the table and the table was wet. Instead they just brought more serviettes for us to mop it up ourselves. Our meals did not arrive at the same time. My partner ordered something that came quickly and I sat for almost half an hour waiting for my meal and watching him eat. When my meal eventually arrived he had finished and had to sit and wait and watch me eat.

    Good food, but the portion seems to have gotten slightly smaller and the price has increased. Still one of the best Japanese restaurants in Sydney.

    This has been my go to lunch place. But the beef sukiyaki I had wasn't fresh. It feels like leftovers from the day before. Very salty and dry. Little disappointed as I love this place.

    Chose the Sakura bento which was very yummy. Grilled salmon and wagyu beef were cooked just right and both melt in your mouth. Sashimi was refreshing. Service was excellent as expected of Japanese people! ごちそうさま でした。 とても 美味しかった です ね!
