    A nice cafe tucked away in the street so can be a bit hard to find. Arrived early for the breakfast set. Loved the variety and it's very filling for one person. Staff was really nice too. Highly recommend!

    There are two types of frozen curry available, wagyu and beef tendon. I bought a frozen wagyu curry for my son to try but when I pay I was told I need to pay a cheaper price which is beef tendon. We asked the lady a few times is this the right price because the bag said is wagyu and she kept saying you only need to pay the beef tendon price. When we went home to reheat the curry and realized it was just the beef tendon, we were very disappointed. I don’t understand why they put it in the wrong bag but never told us the curry is just the beef tendon. If it was just a beef tendon we won’t buy it. The food is really overrated and not that special. The onigiri stuffing is not enough, I had the crab and uni, black cod onigiri, honestly the stuffing is not enough, too much rice. Price is not worth for this kind of food. 2 adults and 1 kid spent over $100. I would rather eat something else.

    Went here for lunch on a Sunday. Highly recommend making resos as they are popular and busy. The uni onigiri lunch special was amazingly fresh and satisfied my uni craving. Service was very friendly and welcoming. Plenty of free street parking around here. Will definitely come back to try their many other offerings.

    Nice service with good variety of choices. This is an area in town I don’t visit normally, so this is a good find as a reason to explore the area for something different.

    Food was good but a bit much rice for the ongiri. Also my uni sashmi had a bitter taste. But all the other dishes were good. Enjoyable meal.
