    We were so excited to try this restaurant last night and left feeling rather underwhelmed and disappointed. The actual restaurant aesthetics were stunning, it was elegant, refined, spacious and quite lovely, however the food was nothing great, at all. The tuna tartare had a huge amount of miso emulsion on it which completely overpowered the delicate flavours of the tuna and avocado - it was very mushy and you couldn't taste the individual ingredients, the cauliflower was actually quite tasty and while the shrimp in the tempura was great, the mushrooms were over-cooked and soggy. The staff were attentive but didn't seem overly happy or enjoying working there. Oh and the wine list was awful, but for Sake lovers, there was a huge selection to choose from. While the ambience in the restaurant was lovely, the food was very disappointing and I don't feel they know flavours very well. We won't be returning.

    We were disappointed in the food. Service and room were great. We had one item (steak and shishito peppers) that was quite good. Every other item ranged from average (gyoza and udon) to terrible (sando).

    They cram a lot of tables into a small space so it can be loud with not much privacy. I found the food to be pretty pricy for the portion sizes. The hand rolls are $6-7 each and can eaten in 2 bites. The tempera yams were the smallest portion of all! It tastes good…but it’s expensive. Service was outstanding.

    We were fortunate to be able to taste at least 50% of the menu and everything was fantastic! A tasty surprise was the pickled cucumbers and the best tuna tartare we’ve had to date. Will definitely go back 🙂

    The ambiance and drinks were great. We had the dandy rice beer and it was served in a cold mug which was so refreshing! We had the steak, 2 cones (scallop and beef), milk buns, sashimi and the tuna tartare. The steak and milk buns were the best. Good sauce, mushrooms and great cook of the meat. The hand rolls didn’t have much inside and just tasted like nori and rice. Sashimi was a good selection but the lemon and lime made it taste like well, lemon and lime and I’m not a fan of that. We also thought the tartare could have lightened up on the sauce or came on the side so we could taste the tuna.

    The food came out without any rhyme or reason and was extremely slow. In the 2 hours we were there, we ordered 8 hand rolls, tempura, tartar, milk buns, and the doughnuts. Of which there were times we waited up to 30 minutes for the next dish, with the hand rolls coming out first. The fish is mediocre fresh, and the service was sub par (no the restaurant was not packed to the brim or extremely busy). I've been twice now and I honestly wouldn't recommend.

    Overall I liked the place. Kind of expensive for what you get so it would only be a place I go to a couple of times a year. The tuna tar tar for example was lots of cream on the top and very little tuna.
