Hot tip: make sure to book around 3 days in advance. This is a beautiful, tiny family run restaurant with authentic Japanese hot pot. They had sashimi on offer which we enjoyed for entrée. We ordered 3 hot pots for 9 people with vegetables, meat...More

A group of us ate here last night and enjoyed a very sumptuous meal. We did yakiniku (two types of wagyu, chicken, seafood platter and vegetables) and loved it. The staff were great and helped to make the meal one of our favourite here.
