    I didn't take any photos, was too busy enjoying myself. The Wagyu is a special dish. The cocktails are delicious too.

    It was a great restaurant to eat at. We had the banquet option which was all cooked to perfection. The staff were lovely, and the vibe was nice and relaxed.

    I have been here many times but getting worse each time. Karage chicken dry and flavourless, dumplings came out barely warm. Forgot some dishes and bought out wrong dishes. A disappointing experience

    Due to time constraints we were unable to enjoy a full meal but we will come back to do this. It certainly was impressive with the few courses we had time for.
